Ever since 1927, when Norwegian fishermen first came to Western Australia’s north west coastline and establish the first “Nor-West’ operation, there were already good signs that the fishery was robust and healthy.
Operating since 1963, our vessels fish seasonally from April through to September in the Shark Bay fishery, located south of Carnarvon in the North West of Australia.
The multi specie fishery catches primarily King Prawns, Tiger Prawns, Scallops and Crabs, with by-catch of Squid, Whiting, Bugs, Mantis Shrimp, Coral Prawns and Flathead.
Our facility in Carnarvon houses our 15 vessels, cold store, dry dock slipway with engineering division and operating staff members.
We also have vessels that port in Carnarvon and fish through the Gascoyne, Pilbara and Kimberley regions of Western Australia where they catch the premium Spanish Mackerel specie.
Our vessels are EU and Export registered with product marketed both locally and internationally so everyone can share our seafood provenance from the North West of Australia.
Fishing takes place within the confines of Shark Bay in water depths of 10 to 30 metres.
The prawn trawlers are at sea on average 22 days per trip, the fleet returns to port to offload its catch at the end of each trip which coincides with the full moon closure of the fishery.
Our products are caught using the trawling fishing method from April through to September annually (subject to fishery management). All our products are caught, graded, packed and blast frozen at sea for maximum quality preservation.
This ensures the natural flavours of the product are captured, for which this exceptional region is renowned.
