The best fish in the business : Fins Seafood

Sourcing premium ingredients for our valued customers is high on the priority list at My Foodie Box. Our food box delivery is based in Perth and this means we have access to some of Australia’s best produce and suppliers. Western Australia is home to some of the best fishing playgrounds in the world, and one of our highly respected suppliers, Fins Seafood knows that all too well!

Located in Hamilton Hill, Western Australia, Fins Seafood sources fresh seafood from Geraldton, Kalbarri and Carnarvon. They have a real commitment and passion for delivering top quality products and showcasing what our local shorelines have to offer whenever possible.

There has been quite a buzz around terms like wild-caught fishand farmed fish, particularly when it comes to Australian salmon. What’s the difference?

Wild-caught fish is the most premium and best quality fish money can buy. These fish feed on what the ocean provides them, just the way nature intended. They are caught via fishing lines using premium bait. Line fishers generally fish one or two nights at a time, meaning the fish are processed quicker and are fresher when they get to consumers.

Farmed fish are fed high protein diets to aid in their growth. These fish are generally caught in traps or trawled with nets. These types of fishing methods can bruise the flesh of the fish, which can affect the taste and quality of the meat.

Fins Seafood sources only from line fishers, meaning all their fish are line caught and therefore premium quality. All fish are caught sustainably and humanely. They are stored to retain freshness all the way from the fisher’s boat to the consumer’s plate.

Fins Seafood provenance-tags all their fish. This indicates where the fish was caught and by whom. Now more than ever it’s important to know where our food is coming from, particularly in the fishing industry.

One of the owners at Fins Seafood, Phil Clark said:

“Provenance labeling was an opportunity to connect customers to the origin of the seafood they purchase, including the fisher.”

Fins Seafood is one of those companies that have a real passion for what they do. They speak of their fishers like friends rather than employees or suppliers. Sustainable fishing and ocean conservation are high on their agenda; Fins Seafood treats all fish, seafood and the environment with the respect they deserve. This is one of the many reasons we love working with them.
