Coffs Harbour Fishermen’s Co-op embraces online fish auctions

Coffs Harbour Fishermen’s Co-op is proud to be the first suppliers of brand new online seafood auction site, Australian Fish Auctions. This innovative step sees Coffs Harbour Fishermen’s Co-op partake in the first ever Australian online seafood auction, launching later this month. Our new platform is available to fish and seafood wholesalers and retailers nationally. Purchasers from all over Australia can now enjoy fresh, high quality Australian seafood, sourced locally and daily.

While Coffs Harbour Fishermen’s Co-op was quick to jump on the opportunity of online seafood auctions, they by no means want to limit the suppliers to just themselves.

“This is a fantastic opportunity and Coffs is simply starting the process. We hope to quickly widen supply to include all other Co-ops and other quality seafood aggregators/catchers in Australia providing wholesalers with more options to source their fresh seafood.”
Andrew Mitchell, Coffs Harbour Fishermen’s Co-operative

Seafood is an area where it has long been challenging to obtain fresh (not frozen) locally sourced produce. Often, seafood is frozen and from various, often unknown, overseas locations. With Australian Fish Auctions, we aim to break down any barriers, provide transparency of where and when our seafood is sourced, and supply beautiful, fresh fish to retailers and wholesalers Australia-wide.

No matter if you are located in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland or as far as Western Australia, we are committed to providing seafood to you, fresher and faster. If you are the winning bidder in one of our online auctions, we will package and distribute the fresh seafood to you either by road or airfreight, depending on your location. For delivery specifics to your area, please contact us.

“Our online auction platform provides wholesalers with a convenient way to buy fresh, high quality Australian seafood and for a lower price.”

Coffs Harbour Fishermen’s Co-operative pride themselves on their collective of quality-oriented fishermen, who are dedicated to providing seafood of the highest standard.
