We are so lucky to be able to source our fish straight from the boats in Kalbarri!
We are so lucky to based in the beautiful West Australian town that has been renowned for its amazing fishing industry for decades. Where the water is clean and unpolluted.
Their fishing grounds stretch from the pristine waters of the Abrolhos Islands to the World Heritage Waters of Shark Bay There are no better fishing grounds in the world than these!
We are lucky enough to deal directly with the fisherman, we know when they’re planning on going fishing and when they should be back in.
The fish that we serve with our fish and chips is Red Throat Emperor (Lethrinus miniatus), it has a delicately flavoured clean white flesh or Spangled Emperor (Lethrinus nebulosus) also known as north-west snapper or yellow emperor. It has a slightly sweet flavour with firm flesh.
Other fish we source from the boats include Red Emperor (Lutjanus sebae) which are in fact not a true emperor they are actually part of the snapper family. There are healthy stocks of red emperor off our coast. Red Emperor is one of Australia’s most highly regarded eating fish, with its firm white flesh, large flack and delicate flavour.
Pink snapper (Pagrus auratus) belongs to the seabream family. They are a highly sought after fish because of their excellent table qualities and they’re good looks.
