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.

There are now consistent container arrivals of imported Reef Fish, including King Snapper, White Snapper, and Red Spot Emperor. We have secured ample stock of these fish varieties to cover your seafood requirements for all your Winter dishes. Due to a global shortage or raw materials, we are experiencing dramatic price increases in all squid and scallop (roe on and roe off) sizes. Importers have indicated that prices will gradually continue to rise, however we are actively securing the most competitively priced products on the market to meet all your requirements.
In addition, our warehouse has a great range of value added products that include well-known brands such as Pacific West, Markwell Foods, A&T, and Kailis Bros. Please check our latest Hot Sheet for Signature Rewards program for all our latest specials.
We are also excited to introduce a new line from Pacific West, with their Atlantic Salmon Portions 180g (skin on) which are lightly smoked. This product is easy to cook and prepare and is well seasoned with a subtle smoked flavour. Perfect for centre of plate dishes. To take advantage of this great product (#29032 code), contact our friendly Customer Service Team or your local Sales Executive to place your order.
With the arrival of the cooler weather and water temperatures, prawn trawlers are now fishing out into deeper waters, reflecting catches of larger sized prawns, with the majority of the catches being U10, U8 and U6 sizes. Only a small percentage of medium prawns are being recorded and prices still remain quite high on all prawns available.
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. 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.
