WESTERN KING PRAWNS

We have been fishing for Western King Prawns for more than fifty years. We sell our MSC certified, European Union accredited prawns throughout Australia and export overseas.

We harvest Western King Prawns during the months of November and December, and from March to June each year… but thanks to our frozen onboard technology you can purchase our product all year round.

Supporting the industry

From our early days as Southern Bluefin Tuna farmers, we have always had a commitment to the industries we work in. From our pioneering method for farming fresh Bluefin Tuna, we are always looking for ways to support the industry and drive change.

We harvest our Western King Prawns on selected nights throughout the year, dependent on the moon phase. Regular surveys of fishing areas allow us to assess the sizes of the prawns. If the prawns are too small, we close that area of the water and find an alternative location with larger sized prawns.

Self-managed fishery is regarded as the best fishery in Australia, if not the world. The result is a premium product and a sustainable supply for generations to come.

Direct to the public

At Dinko Tuna, we have cut out the middleman, so you can get access to fresh, premium Western King Prawns direct from the fishermen. This supports the industry with fairer pricing and gives you access to the fresh product, at the best price.

Our prawns are snap frozen on board the vessel they are caught on, so they are frozen as fresh. When you freeze anything fresh – meat, vegetables or seafood – when it’s frozen fresh it maintains its freshness.

What you will find with our Western King Prawns is a soft and sweet meat that is delicious to eat.
