October-November Seafood Update
Fish: We have fresh whole and filleted fish available for ordering from Monday through to Thursday for next day delivery. This includes a range of local Australian products, with popular lines such as Atlantic Salmon and Barramundi. All fish is processed under strict HACCP guidelines and freshness of the products is guaranteed premium, as we only process to order.
Fresh Ordering Change: Please remember that all orders for fresh fish are required to be placed by 1.30pm Monday to Thursday for next day delivery.
Imported Products: We have experienced continued shortages of imported Barramundi fillets over the last few weeks due to shortage of low catch rates. Importers who already have containers of this products on the water, are due to arrive approximately from the 15th of October. All sizes will be available. We have secured good parcels of Reef fish, including Tropical Snapper, White Snapper and Coral Trout.
Local Prawns: Prawn trawlers are still experiencing very low catches of local prawns due to seasonal conditions. There is also closures for fishing in place that is also impacting on catch quantities. Product is being procured as it becomes available, but it is presently at a premium price.
Oysters: Present quality of local oysters from Coffin Bay is of excellent quality. These oysters are shucked daily for your requirements.
New Products: We have some exciting new products on offer this month; in particular, we have imported Whole Baby Barramundi #27749, which have been conveniently de-boned and gutted, which is perfect for filling with stuffing. This fantastic new product is exclusive to QffS.
We are still great success with recently introduced new product lines below:
