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