Orders received daily before 6am Monday to Thursday will be packed and dispatched the same day for delivery the following weekday. Orders placed after 6am on Thursdays will be dispatched the following Monday. Oceans North Seafood do not process orders on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Please note some products in our collection require a 2-weekday lead time as they are harvested/caught to order. This will be detailed in the product description of such products.

All products will be delivered in insulated poly-bins with gel-ice packs and may include biodegradable wool-cool or packing material for extra insulation (if required).

We choose to partner with NZ Post Couriers for Nationwide deliveries. We have an arrangement with them whereby our poly-bins are kept in chillers located at all the main depots during transit. This provides an extra layer of security around the cold chain.
