Lobster and Trap & Line Fisher
Danny is a second generation fishermen. He did work experience at the Co-op when he was just 15 years old. He then started fishing with his father in 1989 before buying his first boat in 1992.
He moved onto lobster and trap n line fishing full time in 1996. Danny helped teach & encourage one of our younger fishermen Danny Green to enter fishing the industry, Danny Green ended up buying his fathers boat the Lematt. Danny’s sons are already showing a love for the water and fishing industry by working on the boat whenever they can.
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.
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.
My wife and I ordered grilled swordfish. It took some time until it was done, but then we each got a nicely grilled piece about the size of a T Bone steak. Our daughter liked the salad. It might not be the place for a formal dinner but if you are hungry for fish at a reasonable price it’s certainly worth going there.
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.
