Great news for seafood lovers in Ashgrove! Rufus King Seafoods is bringing its fresh North Straddie seafood to a new location in Ashgrove. This business has been supplying locals and visitors to Stradbroke Island with fresh seafood for over 20 years at its Amity Point location. The final touches and preparation are now being made to the new premises on Waterworks Road and Rufus King Seafoods, Ashgrove will be opening at the beginning of October. Owners, Stephanie and Ed Walker, are planning to move from The Bay to Ashgrove next year - Ed grew up in Ashgrove and is looking forward to "coming home".

If you're looking for fresh seafood, this is the new go-to place for you. The prawns are to die for - straight off the trawlers at the Amity Point jetty and so sweet and fresh. For sale you'll find: cooked Balmain bugs, cooked ocean king prawns, green headless king prawns, sand crabs (blue swimmers), mud crabs, rock shell oysters, swimmer crabs, whiting, Spanish mackerel, sea mullet, tailor, school mackerel, flathead, bream and squire. Stephanie says that at times they need to supplement their fish supply with fish from local markets (Australian) as fish numbers in the Stradbroke Island area are not always sufficient to meet demand. Other market seafood for sale includes: goldband snapper, blue-eye trevalla, yellow tuna, scallops and mussels.

Recently, regular clients and others have been taking advantage of the new mobile seafood van which provides a convenient home and workplace delivery service. This van also delivers to rural areas such as the Brisbane Valley, Warwick, Chinchilla and Miles.
