Our courier partners will leave the delivery at the door on their normal delivery cycle. In most cases, deliveries will be made by midday, however this is dependent on daily demand and local conditions. In all cases, deliveries should be completed by 5pm.
Some delivery areas are not serviced by a Saturday delivery. Please use the address checker here to check delivery to your address.
Delivery areas and deliveries
While we will pack your order to the best of our abilities, frozen product does start thawing as soon as it is removed from the freezer. If frozen product is ordered, responsibility is on the receiver and not the sender for defrosted product on arrival. If product has arrived thawed, do not refreeze and you should consume within 3 days,
For all products sold as a weight, example: fish fillets of 500 grams, we will always pack a minimum weight of 500 grams. Fresh seafood comes in many shapes and sizes and catches can be different every day. Please let us know in the instructions if you would like us to find certain fillet sizes, however this is not guaranteed. Some products sold as an approximate weight with a fixed price may have an actual weight that is +/- the approximate weight given.
Handling of product on arrival
Seafood Bazaar operates under an MPI approved RMP plan and is export approved.

We have tried our hardest to be as environmentally friendly as possible with the packaging choices we have made for your delivery. While there are some innovations in development, we still get best temperature results from polystyrene boxes. While we are still searching for a plant based alternative, polystyrene can be recycled at many places around NZ, you can see the locations here.
What we have made progress with
- Carton liners used are degradable.
- Fresh seafood products, where possible, will be packed in commercially compostable packaging from New Green. You can view more about their products here.
- Gel packs can be reused many times when you need to keep things cold. Ideal for camping, picnics, sports events, at the beach or by the pool. Gel packs can be recycled by cutting open and disposing of the gel in the waste (gel is non toxic and is not harmful when put to landfill). Wash the plastic and recycle via kerbside recycling for soft plastics.
