Tony, Moana, and the Curly Tree team
We are based in the heart of West Coast whitebait country 10 Kms north of Haast and 120km south of the Glaciers on SH6 at the Waita river.
Curly Tree's whitebait is sourced from a select few of the cleanest whitebait producing rivers on the South Westland coast. These rivers have had little human impact, and still produce yields on par with when Tony's great-grandparents were fishing them.
Our focus is simple - to provide you the best West Coast white gold - Curly Tree Whitebait is New Zealand Food Safety Authority approved and is proud to cater to the requirements of supermarkets, major distributors, restaurants, hotels and individuals alike.
If you get the chance to enjoy the riches of the West Coast just follow the 'Curly Tree' & 'Whitebait Patties' signs (yes we do freshly cooked whitebait patties too) and have a slice of real kiwiana right on the banks of where it's caught.
Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.
