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.
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.
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.
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.
This was fish and chips done to perfection. Thick crunchy fish cocktails, calamari rings, prawn cutlets and chips were all fantastic.
