Established in 1970, the Gold Coast Fishermen's Co-Operative was one of the first developments on the Spit at Main Beach.

For decades trawlers caught and sold their local catch to providers in the seafood industry. In 2005, the Co-Operative sought approval from the Gold Coast City Council Health and began selling their catch direct to the public from the boat at the best possible price.

As Paul Weston writes, the Queensland Government is in the process of selling off the lease to Carters Basin on The Spit—for over 50 years the home of our beloved trawlers.

So if you want to be able to continue to buy straight off the trawlers the freshest seafood on the Gold Coast, use the link below to sign the E-Petition.
