About us

Thank you for stopping by our website! We’re a generational fishing family and our passion is healthy, wholesome living through food, lifestyle, sport and community involvement.

Malanda Seafood owns and operates two of our own fishing boats, specialising in Reef Fish Fillets & Gulf Estuary Fillets straight from the ocean to your plate! Supplying the Atherton Tablelands and surrounds with the best local wildcaught seafood.

As Reef Guardian Fishers, we go well beyond industry standards to ensure the living Reef resources we rely upon are protected into the future. Mark is a 2nd generation fisherman, while he works away catching our delicious varieties of fish, Karen runs the shop and provides product knowledge together with cooking tips and tricks and is happy to chat to customers regarding industry issues and news topics. With 3 children helping on the boats or in the shop where they can, also being active in the community with sports and fundraising events. We take pride in supporting other local fishing families and Australian businesses.
