Far West scallop is mainly found near coastal waters of Western Australia, Queensland and New Caledonia. This scallop is known for its fresh sweet taste, a firm texture and its very white colour.

 

Far West is the largest producer of scallops in Australia and the only Australian scallop fisher that operates in multiple fisheries. Far West Australian Wild Caught Scallops are sustainable and of high quality.

 

These scallops are caught in the beautiful, clean and pristine waters of Shark Bay, which is a world heritage-listed area, the Abrolhos Islands and the South Coast of Western Australia.

Shucked and frozen on board to preserve the Freshness of the scallop.

Shark Bay is the most western part of mainland Australia and home to the largest and most reliable scallop fishery in Western Australia. The fishery is located in a UNESCO world heritage listed marine environment, noted for its beauty, bio-diversity and clean waters.

 The Abrolhos Islands are located off the coast of Western Australia near the town of Geraldton, 400 km north of Perth. The Islands are known for their natural beauty, reefs and abundant fishing.

The South Coast scallop fishery is Western Australia’s largest by size, stretching from Augusta to Israelite Bay.

 Far West has a fleet of six modern scallop trawlers, used exclusively for catching scallops

The scallops are shucked and frozen on board to better preserve the taste and texture of the scallops. Highly efficient freezers ensure quick-freeze times.

The boats pull two nets just above the ocean bottom with exclusion devices attached to significantly reduce bycatch
