Barramundi

Saltwater barramundi is an iconic Australian fish species revered by anglers and seafood lovers alike.

 

Our Barramundi is processed within 4 hours of harvest and snap frozen using state-of-the-art Japanese belt freezing. Fast frozen fillets are best thawed slowly by cutting the vacuum pack and placing on a plate in the refrigerator for 12-24hrs. We sell natural cut fillets, portion controlled fillets and whole cleaned pan size fish.

 

The name Barramundi is Aboriginal for ‘large-scaled silver fish’ and is the fish at the centre of an ancient Aboriginal folk tale called ‘Forbidden Love’ and those who believe in the story believe it has aphrodisiac qualities and call them ‘Passion fish’
