Ian started fishing as a deckhand for his father in 1986 working out of Newcastle before becoming the skipper of the vessel two years later. Ian brought the vessel from his father in 1991 continuing the family tradition being a fourth generation fishermen.
Ian moved to the Coffs Coast for his beautiful wife Celina and has been a member with of the Coffs Co-op since 1998. He owned various vessels with the Aquarius Prawn Trawler being the latest. He spends many nights out on the boat trying to bring in the freshest & highest quality prawns for locals to enjoy.
He also is the Vice Chairman of the Coffs Co-op leading the way for future fishers.
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.
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.
This was fish and chips done to perfection. Thick crunchy fish cocktails, calamari rings, prawn cutlets and chips were all fantastic.
