Coral Trout by Chris Bolton - 150g
A very special product...
Delicious Produce Award Winner - "From the Sea" category, Professional Fisherman Chris Bolton
Chris Bolton is a third generation fisherman from the Great Barrier Reef who started fishing from the age of 5 years old.
Chris has redefined how Australian's source their seafood. He uses a very targeted fishing method that has extremely low by-catch, if any at all. Chris and his team are part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) reef guardian program that recognises the positive environmental work undertaken by communities and industries to protect the Great Barrier Reef.
Coral trout is one of the most highly regarded table fish. As a result of only fishing in depths greater than 50m, the trout caught are always a very deep 'coral' red colour. It is important to note that most coral trout caught commercially in QLD is exported live overseas. We are very pleased to be able to offer this very special product for you to enjoy at home.
Chris also uses the well regarded Ike-jime kill method which reduces the level of adrenaline in fish when caught. Adrenaline can shorten the shelf life of fresh seafood regardless of how well they are handled. The Ike-jime method instantly paralyses the fish causing immediate death in the most humane possible way.
Each piece of this incredible fish is cut to order each day, cut dry without the use of Freshwater which dilutes the flavour of fish, and is hand selected by Costa Nemitsas, one of the most respected fish mongers in the country.
Each piece feeds 1 person.
