September Seafood Market Update

September 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.

Imported Fish:

We have secured good stock levels of imported Barramundi fillets from Taiwan in all sizes with expected staggered shipments over the next three months. To avoid any stock shortages and subsequent price increases that may occur. There is also consistent supply of Reef Fish Fillets and portioned fish.

Imported Prawns:

The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources have lifted the ban on imported prawn cutlets and meat, with the first arrival of new product expected to be around mid-September (we are awaiting clearance on product that has arrived. Once this has been approved, imported prawns will become available). Product and sizing will be limited until supply imports increase in their regularity. We will advise you as soon as more information is available on sizing and pricing. In the interim, we can offer you the following products:

Prawn Notice

Prawns/Scallops: 

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.

Oysters:

With fresh Tasmanian Oysters still recovering from the POMs disease from earlier this year, Oyster farmers are struggling to meet current market demands. Therefore supply over the next 3-4 weeks may be inconsistent, however we can offer our frozen Tasmanian (Ashmore #90092) and New Zealand (Clevedon Coast #27217) Oysters as a quality substitute.

September Specials: 

To celebrate Spring we have A&T Salt & Pepper Torpedo Calamri #11753, and Pacific West Classic Seafood Basket 230g #11851. If you’re after fish, we have the Clean Harvest Centre Cut Barramundi Portions 170/200 Skin On #27603, and the Pacific West Atlantic Salmon Portions (Scaled) #10583.
