The yellow-foot paua has a smaller and more elevated shell compared to the more common black-foot paua. It's shell is reddish to yellowish brown, the animal is black but it's tentacles and underside of the foot are yellow. It can be found on rocky reefs and wave exposed coasts usually in depth ranges between 1-5m. This paua is fished recreationally, and although quota is allocated for the species, it is not commercially harvested extensively. In the shallows of Aramoana especially in the first 1-2m the small yellow-foot paua are easily located.
Adults can grow up to 100mm in length
