Levin Eel Trading Co Ltd is a family owned eel processing and eel export business based in Levin, Horowhenua region (lower North Island) of New Zealand.
We export live and processed eel to various international markets throughout Asia, Europe and North America. We pride ourselves in the high standard of quality we achieve in the products, for example in our eel pieces/segments product we hand-skin all the eels to achieve a higher quality product.
There are two species of freshwater eels in New Zealand – the shortfin eel (Anguiilla australis) and the longfin eel (Anguilla dieffenbachii). The longfin eel is native to New Zealand, whilst the shortfin eel is also found in South Australia, Tasmania and New Caledonia. New Zealand freshwater eels are managed through the New Zealand Quota Management System to ensure a sustainable future.
