Cando Fishing is very lucky to have 4 fantastic divers at the top of their game of which 2 will be representing New Zealand at the World Free Diving Championships. For those of you who don't know, in order to catch Kina, the divers are not allowed to use breathing aparatus and have to do whats called free diving. Dwane and Julian are 5x New Zealand Champions at this sport and are heading off soon to represent New Zealand in the world free diving championships in Greece. The team at Cando Fishing wish them all the best and hope they can bring it home.

Heres a video of Dwane at work.



Over the weekend Bluff became the hive of activity as the annual Bluff Oyster and Seafood Festival was held. The weekend drew huge numbers and was sold out well in advance. Cando Fishing had their stand set up ready for the punters that attended. Most noticable was the amount of people that have never tried Kina that came over to sample it. After a couple of screwed up faces, it was interesting to note that when they had got over the texture of the Kina, the taste came through and most were pleasantly suprised at how creamy and sweet the Kina were. In fact, 95% of the peope that had tried it, actually liked it.. however, there were the other 5% ;-)

Cando Fishing wish to make mention of the awesome job that the Oyster Festival Committee had done this year, with a remarkable difference over recent years. The atmosphere was tremendous and the stalls were user friendly.

The Cando Team stepped up to the challenge with Maxine and Jennie putting together a fantastic menu for people to try. Kina was the main product on offer with Marinated Greenbone (Butterfish) along with a very popular Paua Pattie sandwich and a selection of Cando Minced Paua Punnets. Campbell, Lyndsay, Pat and Jase were in the frontline with Maxine and Jennie sorting the Paua Patties out and some fantastic help from Jason and Lynley Phillips who had only come down to Bluff to attend the festival, but ending up making a big difference for the team by helping out behind the scenes. Cando Fishing also wish to thank Ryan McManaway for running backwards and forwards to the factory to keep us topped up with whole Kina.

International visitors to our stall. They really enjoyed the Kina

Not as bad as she thought.

The face got better once she was over the texture.

Never tried, but was suprised in the end.
