The Ocean Jacket (Nelusetta ayraudi) is also known as Leatherjacket and Chinaman Leatherjacket. This beautiful fish ranges in colour from bright yellow to pale white and grey. The flesh is white with a moist and delicate texture and pleasant sea aroma. Ocean Jacket is caught in the Southern Ocean around seagrass or the sand bottom using trap fishing vessels.

The fishery is underpinned by stringent catching and handling regulations and is regularly audited and monitored by the South Australian Government (PIRSA) with a strict system of limited licenses, boats and pot numbers.
O C E A N TO P L A T E
Ferguson Australia maintains the key supply of Ocean Jacket out of South Australia. The trap vessels process the fish on-board by heading, gutting and chilling the fish immediately after they are caught. At our processing factory, we clean the fish further and cut to the customers’ requirements, then freeze for quality. All frozen Ocean Jacket products are processed from Fresh fish and snap frozen on the same day. This gives the products an 24 month shelf life.
