Scallops

Scallops sourced from Port Phillip Bay

An Australian owned and operated local company they pride themselves on providing superior live scallops, which are sourced in an environmentally responsible way by hand diving.

They are the only company in Victoria who has a licence to harvest scallops from Port Phillip Bay and they operate sustainable fishing practices with their divers only harvesting scallops 9 centimetres and over.

The scallops grow naturally and are native to Port Phillip Bay gathering in clusters throughout the bay.Each hand picked scallop has gone through at least two spawning cycles ensuring that it has had an opportunity to populate the bay with new scallops.

Scallops are quick growing and only take about 2 and a half years to grow to harvestable size.Whilst they are only harvesting a very small percentage of the scallops in the bay, they conduct annual surveys to ensure the long term health of the fishery.
