Chris Bolton Fishing

Whether you are a chef at a 5-star restaurant looking to make every meal special, or a fisherman wanting to have the best chance of hooking that special fish, you won’t be disappointed with the quality of our product.

We bring to you some of the finest quality wild caught fish to ever leave the ocean.

Every single fish we catch is handled with the care and respect it deserves.

Every fish we sell is sashimi grade, the best of the best.

We are a small, family owned and operated fishing business based at Kurrimine Beach, Nth Queensland. I am the skipper and fisherman on every single fishing trip. With help from my partner Kim, my father Wayne at times, and 1 or 2 deckhands, I am hands on with every part of our business. From catching the fish, cleaning boats, taking orders, packing fish, or just having a good old yarn with customers, I am there. I believe this is the only way to ensure everything is up to the standard our customers expect.

Our line-caught reef fish are killed instantly and humanely using the ike-jime method. Fish are bled well and immediately placed into a salt ice brine to bring their temperature down to 2oC. Once this is achieved, every fish is gently hand-packed, one by one into our custom-made fibreglass eskies and covered with flake ice.

Having small, fast boats means we don’t catch large quantities. It means our fishing time is very short – very rarely more than 24 hours fishing before returning to port, with some trips as short as 6 hours.

When returning to port, we don’t unload at the wharf. Our boats are winched onto a trailer, towed by an ex-sugar cane haul-out tractor, and the catch is driven right to the door of our coldroom and packing facility, which was designed and made by myself to suit the way we operate. Our catch is unloaded from the boat and immediately packed for transport, with minimal handling and in the shortest possible timeframe.

Air freight is our preferred method of transport, unless we are supplying to the local area of course.

Premium Quality

We can have any and every fish we catch delivered to anyone, anywhere in Australia within hours of being caught…

All at premium quality.

Wild Caught Fish

Wild caught fish is one of the healthiest foods on the planet.

These fish aren’t fed processed pellets, or had any hormones or antibiotics in their system.

They have lived a life most of us dream of — a life in the clean waters of the Coral Sea, amongst the beautiful Great Barrier Reef.

Every day they are eating delicacies such as squid, sea urchins, prawns, sardines, fusiliers, garfish, crabs and more. Is it any wonder they taste so good?! 100% pure organic, natural food. The way nature intended.

If healthy eating, premium quality, and sustainability are your concerns, be concerned no longer.

Supplying Australia with healthy, sustainably and responsibly caught, premium quality fish is our job. And we take our job very seriously.



Proud to be Reef Guardian Fishers

As a commercial fishing business, we rely on a healthy, sustainable environment.

We believe if we do the best we can by the environment, the environment we rely on will do the best for us as well.

The Great Barrier Reef is more than just a place we rely on for our business, its our life, its our families life, and we want it to stay that way for generations to come.

Tonight's the night!! ๐Ÿฅณ
2019 delicious.aus produce awards

delicious. Australia
Ahead of the delicious. Harvey Norman Produce Awards on Monday night, we decided to shake up our regular The Chef and The Butcher column by turning the duo into a trio with Gerry Harvey (proud sponsor of the awards), who, before conquering the world of retail, always thought he'd be a farmer. Go behind the scenes from his Quke farm (which produces more than 65 million baby cucumbers each year) in Peats Ridge as The Chef and The Butcher, and now The Farmer, discuss why it's never been more important to #knowyourproducer. Discover more about the delicious. Harvey Norman Produce Awards at #produceawards #makeitdelicious
