August Seafood Market Update
Fresh Local Fish:
To ensure we offer you the highest quality products, our local fish is processed by a family-owned business who directly unload from a number of hand-selected fishing boats. 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. We have several local fish species on offer that include, Goldband Snapper, Barramundi, Red Emperor, Reef Fish, Yellowfin Tuna, Sweetlip and Swordfish. All fish species are subject to availability depending on the fisherman’s catch.

New arrivals of imported Reef Fish such as Coral Trout, King Snapper, Red Spot Emperor and Tropical Snapper are expected to arrive in the middle of August, with most sought after sizes; 100/200 and 200/300 will be available. We are also anticipating the arrival of Roe On and Roe Off Scallops in the smaller sizes within the next week, as you may have been aware, there has been a vast shortage of raw material for this product, causing the prolonged shortage of supplies which is reflected in the increased market prices.
We are pleased to annouce that we are now ranging Pacific West’s 180 gram Lightly Smoked Salmon Portions Skin On (#29032), which is packaged in 5 Kg cartons. These are individually packaged for your convenience, and is well seasoned making it easy to cook and prepare and are an excellent choice for centre of plate. In addition, we also have Barramundi Fillets (skin off) 200/300 at a red hot price during August. To take advantage of this great product (#11603), contact our friendly Customer Service Team or your local Sales Executive to place your order.
Prawn trawlers are currently catching predominately Ocean King Prawns with a grading of 10/15 or larger. At the moment, we are experiencing minimal catches of local Moreton Bay Bugs and Half Shell Scallops, however we have secured sufficient stock levels for your requirements.
If you’re after some excellent local oysters, we currently have some high quality, daily shucked oysters from Coffin Bay available for all your requirements that are currently in peak condition. Due to the Pacific Oyster Mortality that occured earlier this year, supplies of Pacific Oysters from Tasmania has had a detrimental impact on product availability, however we have secured good stock levels of frozen Tasmanian Oysters to cater to the rest of 2016.
