Company Profile

Where it all started

Mooloolah River Fisheries is located at the end of Parkyn Parade in the Port of Mooloolaba, Queensland, Australia, approximately 80kms north of Brisbane.

 

Mooloolah River Fisheries Pty Ltd was established by Tony Pinzone and Beverly Atkins together with Murray Scott in 2000. Their concept of the development was to provide a fully integrated facility to service the Fishing and Seafood Industries. After five years of planning, Mooloolah River Fisheries construction began and was completed in 2002. Overtime, Mooloolah River Fisheries has evolved from a small operation to the largest operating seafood company on the Sunshine Coast.

 

Mooloolah River Fisheries is a fully integrated operation with a Commercial Fishing Vessel Marina, Unloading Wharf, Commercial Diesel Supply, Cold Storage, Ice Making Plant, Retail Seafood Market, Local Hospitality Distribution, National and International Wholesale and Seafood Processing Facilities. The complex was designed to be environmentally safe with a fully integrated Environmental System that covers the entire site, maintaining all seafood waste, surface and storm water or spillage, providing maximum protection to the local environment and waterways.

 

The facilities are designed to handle Prawn Trawlers, Tuna Longliners and general Fishing Vessels. The facility holds EU and full AQIS HACCP and Safe Food Queensland accreditation which allows Mooloolah River Fisheries to export Australian Seafoods to all parts of the world, as well as provide products to a large proportion of the Australian Domestic Markets.

 

Mooloolah River Fisheries is one of the leading operators servicing the Seafood and Fishing Industries in Australia.
