Paua is a species of abalone (Haliotis Iris), with a very special shell. It is only found in the seas around New Zealand. This marine snails eats seaweed and lives clinging to the rocks at depths of 1-10 metres, normally found around most of the NZ rocky shoreline, but it grows biggest and  best in the cold waters around Stewart Is. and Southland, which is where Led Freddie’s Obsruca Studios gets its paua shell. Paua shell is the most colourful of all the abalone shells. Most other abalone are pale in comparison.
