Silver Sea Seafoods is an Australian owned and operated family business by husband and wife team Allan and Jacky, based out of Mooloolaba on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. Our seafood is sourced from the pristine and sustainably managed waters off the South East Coast of Queensland. We specialise in providing premium quality prawns, wild caught and snap frozen at sea, to restaurant, and wholesale direct markets, in Australia and Internationally all year round. We are 25 years in the seafood industry, and experts at preparing seafood to exact quality standards to meet the demands of a broad range of customers.
Allan and Jacky originally owned and operated the F.V Silver Sea from 2014-2021, She was their first trawler purchase and they believed the name to be quite fitting for their wholesale side of the business. In 2020, Allan and Jacky purchased a new vessel the F.V Kelana. The Kelana works away at sea for up to 24 days of any one month.
The product is caught, packaged, and snap frozen at temperatures of up to -40 degrees while onboard our vessel at sea. This process locks in the prawn’s freshness and flavour, retaining its natural state. We utilise cold storage systems & freight transporters to deliver the finest product directly to you.
