After a busy winter distributing fish heads and frames from Moana and Sanfords, the Kai Ika Project is looking to up the ante over the summer with the provision of a new filleting service at the popular Westhaven boat ramp.
Part of the project, as well as fully utilising the catch, is the inclusion of a filleting service. This was instituted last summer at Auckland’s Outboard Boating Club on Tamaki Drive where for a few dollars anglers could have their fish filleted while they clean down their boats. This service has not been available over winter, mainly due to the fact under COVID lockdown regulation the club’s facilities have been closed, but will resume from Labour Weekend.
The good news is that a new filleting trailer is currently being built for use at Westhaven's Z Pier thanks to the Auckland Council Waste Minimisation Fund, Westhaven, AlRound Sheetmetals, Special Group, Hybrid Electrical, APL Window Solutions and others.
Fish filleting and knife sharpening services will be available from Labour weekend onwards. You can make the most of these services for a modest price.
All unwanted fish parts will be distributed to people who appreciate this rich protein. Volunteers from Papat??nuku K?kiri Marae from South Auckland and LegaSea’s Kai Ika team will be ready and waiting for your contributions.
