Love fish? Celebrate with us!


On April 14th 2017 it’s your chance to get involved with your local fishermen and eat some fantastic local seafood supplied directly from the NSW coast at our free Loaves and Fishes barbecue.

We are encouraging South West Rocks residents and visitors to attend our annual Loaves and Fishes Barbeque on Good Friday and learn more about the fish they enjoy to eat and how it’s are caught.

The free barbeque was aimed at building awareness of the beach hauling industry and the sustainable practices in place to reduce the level of bycatch.

The Loaves and Fishes Barbeque is an opportunity for local residents and visitors to come along and enjoy a free feed of mullet and learn more about this important fishery.

Michael Wooden from Oceanwatch Australia and local fishermen will be available for a one on question time to learn more about local fishing practices.

There will be displays on how commercial beach haulers undertake their fishing, from spotting adult fish to the hauling process, as well as information on the history of commercial beach hauling fishing at South West Rocks.

So bring you family, children and friends for a fun day out.
