Live Blackfoot Abalone
New Zealand paua/abalone are widespread around the New Zealand coast. Found from the intertidal zone down to approximately 15 meters. Only paua/abalone over the minimum size limit may be taken by divers who are restricted to using snorkelling equipment.
The meat of the paua/abalone has also been considered good for eye health. Extremely rich in minerals, vitamins and proteins. Paua/abalone is beneficial for maintaining general health and for supporting the liver.
Paua/abalone is low in fat and a good source of omega 3, iodine and phosphorous (phosphate). Omega 3 contains anti-inflammatory properties which can reduce the risk of heart disease and arthritis symptoms and are believed to reduce the risk of developing cancers.
All our live paua are from the South Island or Chatham Islands of New Zealand
