A Manatū Taonga audio guide to Bluff, its wildlife and its seafood industry. Check out the Ministry for Culture and Heritage's audio guide in the image carousel above.

New Zealand's southernmost town is known for its seafood, and more fish and shellfish is landed there than at any other New Zealand port. Bluff is famed for its creamy, delicious oysters, but blue cod, crayfish, mussels and pāua (abalone) are also on the menu. Muttonbirds -- actually sooty-shearwater chicks -- are harvested from offshore islands each autumn by Māori.
