The Titi/Muttonbird Islands are located near Stewart Island in the far south of New Zealand. The islands are not permanently inhabited and are named for the traditional seasonal harvesting of the sooty shearwater by Māori. Muttonbird, also known as tītī or sooty shearwater, have the texture of a bird but a taste similar to fish from the prestigious diet of fish, squid and shrimp-like krill.
Split longitudinally through the breastbone before being graded by size, muttonbird are covered with salt and packed into 10-litre plastic buckets for storage. Preserved in this way and kept cool, the birds can keep for a year or more.
Individually wrapped whole birds (including gut), frozen and unsalted.
