Cone Bay Ocean Barramundi is the only true ocean grown barramundi in Australia which exhibits true ocean saltwater flavours similar to wild caught fish.
Cone Bay also guarantee that their fish will never have an earthy or muddy taste, instead a clean, sweet buttery flavour.
Cone Bay Ocean Barramundi is a forgivable fish, as reported by many home cooks. This is due to its high fat content that keeps it incredible moist even when overcooked. Crispy skin is the ideal way in which to cook Cone Bay Ocean Barramundi and is sometimes referred to as the pork belly of the sea. However our fish lends itself to all forms of cooking and is even used raw in some Japanese restaurants around the country.
