Editorial - Wednesday, July 29: Coffs Coast seafood to market

COFFS Harbour seafood, in particular the region's wild harvested prawns and lobsters, hold great esteem among fishmongers and seafood consumers at the Sydney Fish Market.

The queues lined-up for the signposted 'Coffs Harbour caught prawns' are testament to this every weekend in Sydney.

In great news the Coffs Harbour fishing industry's catch will be showcased at the new Sydney Fish Market, which is set to undergo a major revamp.

Sydney Fish Market general manager Bryan Skepper is in town today briefing the Coffs Harbour Fishermen's Co-operative on the market's redevelopment vision.

The State Government is on board with the project, which is expected to proceed to expressions of interest early next year.

As fishos prepared to learn more about what's planned at the Southern Hemisphere's biggest fish market, Mr Skepper praised the quality of produce netted in these waters.

"The Coffs Harbour region supplies some 770 tonnes of seafood, including octopus, yellowtail kingfish and easter rock lobster, annually to Sydney Fish Market, making it one of our biggest and most valued supply regions."

We'll find out more about the story today and post online.
