Hi team! Does anyone know where to buy squid that was caught by the "jigging" method (hooked lines), as opposed to trawling (which is damaging due to by-catch and harmful to seabirds) in Auckland?
According to multiple sources both methods are used in New Zealand but Im yet to find a supplier who states their source at least when searching the web. Any info would be handy. Also any recommendations of fish shops where fishing method is listed would help. Cheers

I asked my partner who works for MPI.
He suggested Sanfords but suspected that the squid caught that way, may end up on the export market.
Give Sanfords a call, see what they say...

Their catchline is the home of sustainable seafood so fingers crossed you get an answer.
