Whole fish


Locally caught fresh whole fish...

Our whole fish is locally caught and sourced from sustainable managed fisheries off the tropical waters of the NT.

Since Darwin does not have a fish market, fish are unloaded in the Duck Pond where they are then packed and shipped for local and interstate buyers. Most of the whole fish are caught in the Timor box between Darwin and Indonesia, in 50 to 100 meters of water. Mr. Barra prides itself on the highest quality of seafood, so we do not buy trapped fish. Our fish is line-caught or trawled.

We are currently the only seafood outlet in the Northern Territory where you can pick one of our whole fish from our fresh fish cabinet and have it scaled for you in our processing plant. Our giant glass window lets you watch while we work to ensure your fish is exactly as you like it! We guarnatee the freshest fish by scaling them when you're ready to buy!
