Lobster and Trap & Line Fisher
Danny is a second generation fishermen. He did work experience at the Co-op when he was just 15 years old. He then started fishing with his father in 1989 before buying his first boat in 1992.
He moved onto lobster and trap n line fishing full time in 1996. Danny helped teach & encourage one of our younger fishermen Danny Green to enter fishing the industry, Danny Green ended up buying his fathers boat the Lematt. Danny’s sons are already showing a love for the water and fishing industry by working on the boat whenever they can.
Our family of 4 tucked into one of the better fish n chips we have had for a long time. Nice crisp batter (not soggy, oily, or smoothed). We had a selection trawler whiting, flake, calamari, sea scallops, potato scallops, and chips all beautifully cooked, and with great taste of the seafood
A good array of locally caught wet fish and a superb take away with outside covered seating. Was recommended to us as the best fish and chips in town and we would agree.
Service at the Co-Op is friendly and helpful and the fish is MAGNIFICENTLY FRESH. If you have a special occasion coming up, the cooked lobster is absolutely delicious.
Stopped by the Fishermen’s Co-op just before the lunchtime crowd and the snapper was excellent. The crumbing was light and the oil fresh. In fact all the fish there looked great. The calamari was fresh and actually squid rings not mashed together to look like a ring. It got very busy quickly after I arrived and seating outside on the covered deck is limited so get in early or takeaway to the beach close by.
