We have some great prawn specials to entertain friends and family this festive season. Shark Bay Large Raw King Prawns are available in a 3kg box for only $66 & Extra Large Raw King Prawns are $90 for a 3kg Box. These wild caught West Australian Prawns are perfect to barbeque this summer.

There are 3 species of King Prawns – Western, Eastern & Redspot.

 

Our Western King Prawns are caught in the pristine waters of the world heritage area Shark Bay and the Exmouth Gulf between April to November each year.

 

King prawns are trawled over hard sand sediment during the night with the average size 10-16cm in length and 30-45g

 

Australia’s prawn fisheries are very well managed by having a limited number of vessels, seasonal closures, area closures, gear controls and time/moon closures.
