Our Business and Products
Coorong Wild Seafood have won several Seafood Industry, Regional Business and National Produce awards and been featured on many television shows and in other media.
Coorong Wild Seafood prides itself on offering the best seafood the Coorong and Lakes offer. The variety of saltwater and freshwater species showcase the unique ecosystem and the clean and green environment they are carefully harvested from.
Glen brings his daily catch home from The Coorong, one of the most beautiful wilderness areas in Australia only a two-hour drive south of Adelaide. The business has specialised in the regionally popular “Coorong Mullet” due to its relative abundance most of the year. Other species are harvested when in season and plentiful.
Tracy operates the processing business based in Meningie, South Australia. Our award-winning produce has been supplied since 1993 through a range of outlets. Our seafood is also served at some of the top restaurants and function centres in Australia.
