Noosa Grouper – A Taste Of Sustainable Seafood

When most Australians think of grouper they imagine those majestic 200kg fish they see swimming around in tanks at Underwater World.

But in Asia and Europe, Grouper around the 1kg size is a prized table fish and are being exported live by the thousands each week by Ecomarine, a saltwater breeding facility in Noosaville.

It’s unusual to see these fish on the domestic market, but luckily for us, Noosa Fish Providores are able to buy them straight from the tanks and process them to sell in their shop.

Grouper has the beautiful sweet flavour of a reef fish, with a pure white, firm flesh which is easy to work with whether it’s for sashimi or fish and chips.
