Cloudy Bay Clams AraCapital Investment

Cloudy Bay Clams is the pioneer in the industry of harvesting surf clams along the coast of New Zealand.

Surf clams are a native shellfish to New Zealand’s pristine coastal waters. They exist in the turbulent surf zone, rich in food, up to 10 metres under the sea bed. This environment ensures the shellfish develop an outstanding quality and taste profile. The clams’ boutique flavours are versatile and highly valued within the hospitality industry.

Cloudy Bay has successfully undergone both their fishery and chain of custody audits and now carry ‘Friend of the Sea’, an international sustainability seal of approval, for our surf clams.

Friend of the Sea certification confirms our efforts and continuous commitment to sustainability and it represents an important added value for us and our product.

We send the surf clams throughout New Zealand and to the World. We send all Cloudy Bay Clams chilled live and frozen, still within their shells to maximise their flavour and freshness. Our harvesting techniques have developed, due to our extensive research on the process, to ensure the surf clams reach their destination in perfect condition. Cloudy Bay’s top quality New Zealand surf clams provide a unique dining experience that is valued worldwide.
