Western King Prawns (Melicertus latisulcatus) are wild caught in the Spencer Gulf, South Australia and Eastern King Prawns (Melicertus plebejus) are wild caught from Harvey Bay, Queensland.

The King Prawn has a superb taste and texture due to the cold, pristine waters of the Southern Ocean. The King Prawn also has a sweet, delicate but firm white flesh, which makes it perfect for sashimi.

Ocean to plate

Within 30 minutes of being caught at sea, the King Prawns are graded, cooked or left raw and packed into 5kg cartons, then snap frozen on-board the fishing boats. This ensures they maintain their unique fresh sea flavour and premium quality from ocean to plate.
