Banana Prawns

Wild Caught Australian Banana prawns are available as raw peeled de-veined flesh and cutlets(tail-on). Available in Large, Extra Large and Jumbo sizes individually quick frozen and packed in 500g bags.

There are two varieties of wild caught Australian Banana Prawns – White Banana Prawn (F. merguiensis) and the Redleg Banana Prawn (F. indicus).

 

The vast majority of banana prawns are sustainably caught in Northern Prawn Fishery during an 8 week season spanning from the beginning of April to the end of May. Each season the catch is directly correlated to the local rainfall levels between the months of December through to March.

 

Prawn grading refers to the number of prawns per pound

i.e. a prawn cutlet (tail-on) size 26/30 means there are between 26 and 30 prawns per 450g. Jumbo whole prawns graded U10 means less than 10 prawns per pound
