The business began back in December 1998 and was running as Golden Bay Salmon Fishing Ltd. In August 2000 the business was granted the relevant licences and consents for the farm to be completed and the very first salmon stock was introduced
The company began trading as Anatoki Salmon Farm in July 2001 and was purchased in May 2005 by Jan and Gerda Dissel. Together they are nurturing the business and establishing it as a tourist hot spot.
