Andrew started fishing in 1978 at the tender age of 16 in Crowdy Heads. In 1998 Andrew became a Member of the Coffs Harbour Fishermen’s Co-operative and is currently the owner of the Starfish Prawn Trawler.
Andrew semi-retired 15 years ago but has a fabulous crew that work the vessel on his behalf and regularly bring in fresh prawns, bugs, crabs, squid for locals to enjoy. Andrew continues to be very involved with the day to day running, upkeep of the vessel and is a valuable member with years of experience within the Co-operative.
Best cooked fish and chips I have had in so long and I live in a fishing town. Fish was fresh and cooked to perfection.
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.
We came to buy a selection of fish and seafood for a BBQ later that day. The choice was first class, and the service good. The fish was very fresh, and we enjoyed the snapper cutlets, the marlin steak and the prawns. Delicious!
