Anatoki Salmon is a small freshwater salmon farm specializing in a superior quality freshwater salmon product. The farm also operates as a tourist attraction with a fully licensed cafe and offers salmon fishing in a beautiful environment.
The farm is privileged to be located alongside the Anatoki River as it flows out of the steep valleys of the Kahurangi National Park in Golden Bay, New Zealand.
Best thing: There is no entry fee and they provide fishing gear for free as well! You only pay for what you catch which includes the cleaning of the fish.
Anatoki Salmon fishing also has a fully licensed cafe, so relax with a drink while your catch is being prepared.
They also have a POP ( park over property) All our Bay of Islands campervans are self-contained so you are more than welcome after catching your own salmon to stay the night at the parking.
Tip: buy a salad and some nice bread in town (Takaka) and you have a great dinner with your catch of salmon!
All of the activities below are free to experience by the public while the farm is open.
- Educational for All: see the Salmon at different ages and stages of growth, watch salmon being processed or smoked.
- Short Walks: along the bush shaded track beside the intake canal and see trout in their natural habitat.
- Picnic Sites: come and enjoy a picnic, be it by yourself or with the family, at one of our picnic sites around the lake or in our cozy yurt.
