We will continue to have fresh Australian tiger prawns available right through until late June!! This will hopefully help manage the frozen shortage that we are experiencing this year. Gold Coast have completed their fresh harvests, and will be back on line in November from Mossman. Tru Blu have this week and next week to go, and Seafarm will begin harvesting a new crop on Monday the 16th May through to the end of June.
Crystal Bay banana prawn supply ends this week, before resuming from July to October.
The current Spencer Gulf and Boston Bay mussel season in South Australia is drawing to a close. Mussels at this time of year tend to have a larger shell, but are harder to clean due to being in the water for longer. The new season stock will begin soon, and is characterised by smaller, cleaner shells and excellent meat to shell ratios. We will send a separate update when this is taking place.
South Australian Goolwa pipis are in excellent condition, getting bigger as the year goes on and have strong supply. They are an incredibly consistent, reliable product with growth potential!
This year’s Champion award winning aquaculture fish at the Sydney Royal Show, QLD Giant Grouper 3kg plus size supply is on the rise. These make an excellent fillet and cutlet fish. The 600g to 1kg size range is stable and at full capacity at the moment.
Zippel’s Smoky Bay Oysters from South Australia have resumed supply, and we would expect their size, condition and availability to continue improve as the year goes on.
The Clyde River, NSW, has good supply of BIG pacific oysters. We are talking from 135g to 500g per oyster, and we should see our available volumes grow over the coming month.
