Welcome to the Coffs Harbour Fishermen’s Co-operative, located at the very heart of the harbour at the end of the jetty. This is the perfect meeting place between local fishermen and fresh seafood lovers.
The Co-operative has been operating on the foreshores of Coffs Harbour since the early 1950s and is owned by about 50 local fishermen. They supply us with fresh seafood almost every day, which you can buy straight off their boats through our retail store and takeaway.
Our retail store sells all our locally caught fish, including our famous and award winning snapper, plus whiting, flathead, pearl perch, kingfish, tuna (perfect for sashimi), mackerel, swordfish, mahi mahi, marlin, and other local species. We also catch delicious prawns, lobsters, Balmain Bugs and crabs. In addition to locally caught produce we stock the standard staples you’d expect to see so that we can always provide you a full range of delicious fresh fish and seafood in Coffs Harbour. What’s more, we deliver!
The fisherman’s co-op is your one stop shop for both a tasty seafood lunch and to purchase fresh seafood for dinner. Highly recommended the fisherman’s basket for two, it was easily enough to fill both our bellies. We then purchased a fresh kilo of prawns to take home.
My wife and I ordered grilled swordfish. It took some time until it was done, but then we each got a nicely grilled piece about the size of a T Bone steak. Our daughter liked the salad. It might not be the place for a formal dinner but if you are hungry for fish at a reasonable price it’s certainly worth going there.
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.
Best fish & chips we ever had. The Dinner Pack was just huge for two, but you just can’t stop eating! Lovely and crisp chips, and the fish was exceptional. Only draw-back was the very small decking outside, which was too crowded and hard to find a vacant table. Unless of course you take your fish & chips and eat them somewhere else. Everything was as fresh as seafood should be. Straight off the boat! Next time we’ll try the mixed seafood.
