July Seafood Market Update
Fresh Local Seafood:
Our popular fresh fish lines are guaranteed local Australian products that are caught from the trawlers and straight to your plate. In our extensive range, we have sought after species of Red Emperor, East Coast Gold Band Snapper, Tasmanian Atlantic Salmon, and Swordfish. In addition, we can also supply fresh local Ocean King Prawns which are available in large and medium sizes.
All our fresh fish fillets are processed at HACCP certified operations, with most local species of fish available and packaged in convenient 5Kg units, and can be ordered for next day delivery. Please ensure that your orders are place by 12pm midday Tuesday to Friday for next day delivery.
Our seafood availabilities are also emailed weekly from Tuesday, so to avoid missing out, please ensure you sign up to our email marketing subscription here. For other seafood specials, please click here.
We have received notification from the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources that the ban on importing prawn cutlets and prawn meat has been lifted, and we are expecting to receive first available stock in late September, early October. The size availability and pricing is still to be confirmed, however we will ensure that competitive pricing will be offered to our valued customers. Very limited stock is intermittently arriving from Argentina, therefore stock supplies are not meeting the market demand. The current stock levels we are holding include the Pacific West 10/15 Natural Prawn Cutlets (1Kg pack) at $39.99/kg.
We can also offer the following products as alternatives to the natural prawn cutlets and prawn meat.
We have secured new frozen stock of 9/12 Local Green Frozen King Prawns (#16832) and 10/15 Local Green Frozen King Prawns (#35879) and smaller parcels of 16/20 Cooked Frozen King Prawns (#16839). These products are all packed in user-friendly 5 Kg cartons. Please ensure you place your orders early to avoid missing out on these products.
There is also stock levels of local half-shell scallops in 20/30 (#20962) and 40/60 (32967) grading that make a great addition to your centre of plate, and a great alternative to the shortage of imported prawns.
If you’re after some excellent local oysters, we currently have some high quality, daily shucked oysters from Coffin Bay, South Australia, available for all your requirements that are currently in peak condition. We have secured large quantities of frozen Tasmanian oysters to arrive in staggered deliveries between now and October just in time for Melbourne Cup and the festive season. There is also good stock levels of high quality New Zealand oysters.
During this month’s specials, we have Starpak Imported Skinless Barramundi Fillets 200/300 5Kg cartons at $59.95. These fillets are boneless succulent, white-textured meat, perfect as a centre of plate for your Winter dishes. In addition, we also have the A&T Seafood Basket special at $66.95/ctn. From Pacific West, we have their 5 Kg U5 Super Tender Squid Tubes at $58.95/carton.
We have great stock supplies of Whole Cooked Lobsters from Brazil and South Africa.
