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.
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.
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.
Heaps of choice of fresh fish to cook at home. We got the $35 family basket – nice variety, plenty to eat, fast service, great taste. A good way to end a day out in the town before heading home again.
