Wild South Seafood provide the consumer with premium fish from the pristine, cold and deep Southern Ocean. This is where they consider the location of the best and most unpolluted wild-caught fish in the world. The fish is collected from a community of boats when they pull up at the wharf, beautifully hand filleted with care, packed into 2 person sized fillets, vacuum packed and immediately individually quick frozen. All within a few hours of coming off a boat.
This means that even though the product is frozen, it is generally ‘fresher’ than most ‘fresh’ seafood.
Cape Catastrophe King George Whiting is line caught whiting just of the coast line, shoals and inlets of far west Eyre Penisula, near Port Lincoln in South Australia. Cape Catastrophe is just one of the headlands jutting into the Southern Ocean outside of the protected waters of Boston Bay and the boat harbour of Port Lincoln.
Many people would say, that it is definitely true, that King George Whiting is not only the King of the Whiting but king of all the fishes, when it comes to eating pleasure. A finer flaked fish you will never find. It also has an extremely low oil content.
Like all Wild South Seafood fishes from the Southern Ocean, King George Whiting is under sustainable stock management. It is mostly considered an excellent sustainable choice on the basis it is line caught. Line caught fish in Australia, particularly King George, are significantly more expensive than other fish. This is both because it is such a premium and sought after fish, and also because line caught (which is not long lining) means a smaller catch capacity.
