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.

Glen also currently represents the community on the Coorong Partnership as part of the Project Coorong initiative.

The Lakes and Coorong Fishery is a coastal inshore fishery, operating partly in the Coorong National Park, and a RAMSAR listed wetland of international significance.
Using low impact fishing methods means the fishery has an ecosystem based focus and was recognised nationally and internationally for it's world first Environmental Management Plan in 1998.
Marine Stewardship Certification for 4 key species was achieved in June 2008. The fishery has recently undergone a full re-certification, required every 5 years and was undertaken to demonstrate to the people of South Australia that the commercial fishermen were responsible stewards of the shared resource.
