My partner and I have travelled extensively in Australia and are very familiar with how hard it is to buy quality wild caught fish, even in places known to operate fishing fleets.

We therefore appreciate that Malanda, being a small inland town, has a family seafood shop. The family sells wild caught fish using their own boat/boats in the Gulf of Carpentaria. Even seafood that come from other areas of Australia, has been sourced for its quality, before being sold.

Karen, as one of the proprietors, started this shop and has made it into a thriving business, which has a large customer base. We have been customers of Malanda Seafood since commencement of trading.

Karen and her staff are very friendly.

Karen is knowledgeable about her products and takes time to answer questions. Karen deserves acknowledgement and she has our full support.

“Karen & Mark of Malanda Seafood are amazing, just like their fresh, wild caught, Far North Queensland seafood. Using sustainable and market leading fishing practices, they deliver some of the best quality seafood available on the market! As the face of Malanda Seafood, Karen’s customer service, seafood knowledge and desire to deliver nothing but the best wild caught seafood to her customers is what makes this business an absolute standout up here in the Far North. Always so willing to provide quality recommendations, make the customer experience seamless and enjoyable, as well as always going out of her way to make purchase, pickup or delivery as simple and easy as possible to ensure happy, smiling and returning customers. The advocacy and loyalty of her customers is a true demonstration of her customer service finesse, her respect for the finest of produce and makes her a true local business ambassador that the Tablelands should be very proud to showcase. I for one will never buy my seafood from anyone else. I can always be assured to receive exactly what I want and need to create my delicious Seafood delicacies and happily recommend Malanda Seafood to anyone looking to entice their tastebuds with the best the Far North has to offer. Well done guys!!!”
