Trap & Line Fisher
Danny is one of our youngest fishermen.
He moved to the Coffs Coast in 1987 with his parents at age 2. Danny grew up on the Coffs Coast and was always in and around the water surfing, fishing and snorkelling. In high school he did work experience with Ron Stewart on a trap and line boat. After that Danny started his first paid commercial fishing job was on the Hazel K with Russel Kerr and Micheal Burnes (Director) in 2006. After working on the Prawn Trawler for a few year he finally moved on to a trap and line boat with Danny Stewart. He was seasick every day for two weeks straight. Danny Stewart was a fantastic mentor and teacher for Danny, teaching him a lot about commercial fishing. Danny and his fiance Mel bought their first boat, the Lematt, in 2016 to start their own commercial fishing adventure.

Fun Fact: The boys are standing in front of Danny Stewart’s father’s boat, the ‘Lematt’, that Danny Green bought off him in 2016.
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
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.
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.
