Dave Ahoia is a South Auckland local and the Kai Ika Lead Fish Processor. Originally from Tonga, Dave’s career in fish filleting started when he first arrived in New Zealand in 1988. Working at a range of seafood processing facilities including 22 years at Marsic Bros, he continually refined his skills and has become synonymous with professional fish filleting in Auckland.

He’s known as the ‘filleting ninja’ or Dave ‘Edward Scissorhands’ Ahoia. You would be forgiven if you think we speed up his filleting videos, he’s that quick!

Walk away with a greater understanding of how to achieve maximum recovery of every fish you process. This is not just about filleting; the team will also help you recognise different and delicious secondary cuts of a fish. This demonstration is for everyone. From the seasoned vet to the absolute beginner, catered to your experience levels and making sure you leave with the confidence to fillet your next fish like a pro!
