Windy conditions here and in New Zealand are hampering supply so far this week.

South Australian, Victorian and Tasmanian fishing zones have been hit sporadically by strong winds over the last few days which has affected supply of some local lines, most local species such as king george whiting, flathead, garfish and rock flathead are still about just not quite as abundant as usual.

The expected relief from NZ's new quota season starting hasn't arrived due to 100 knot winds making it simply impossible to target fish like blue eye, hapuka, bass groper, john dory and flounder in most areas. We are still getting limited volumes of these lines but pricing is quite high. We have been lucky enough to source Turbot (pictured) and beautiful NZ trumpeter to help fill the gap in supply and offer an alternative.

We've tracked down some great raw sand crab meat from Port Lincoln in South Australia which we are keen to offer our customers from Thursday this week. This crab meat is 100% South Australian crab, caught and processed in Port Lincoln. Give us a call to pre order as stock is expected to move quickly.
