” YOU must visit Jenkins and Son and Fresh Fish. The Jenkins family provides fish to restaurants on the peninsula but fresh fish is also available direct from their home. The day’s catch is listed on the side of the road. ”
-Vivienne Brown Scotchmans Hill group, ‘Peninsula Perfection ‘ published in The Age Travel August 16, 2007
” Jenkins & Son is a family owned business that has been involved in the commercial fishing industry for over 5 generations. Their fish is caught from various areas throughout Port Phillip Bay and it is sold fresh off the boat. Jenkins and son specialize in bay fish, whiting, calamari, snapper, garfish and pike. Either whole or filleted fish is available to purchase. They also sell a large range of 100% Australian seafood (prawns, oysters, scallops and crayfish). They are happy to try and assist with your seafood preferences, should it not be stock. Jenkins & Sons fish for the future and use 100% sustainable fishing practices.”
“Commercial fisherman endure tough physical working conditions and wild weather, they spend days on end at sea to earn a living.”
