Latitude Direct


Latitude is a family fishing company that began in 1964 with Bert & Julie Boschetti.​ Bert Boschetti started crayfishing at the Abrolhos Islands and was based on Basile Island in the Southern Group.

In 1981, the Boschetti's began prawn fishing in the Northern Prawn Fishery and selling prawns locally and exporting overseas. The catches consisted of Tiger, King, Banana and Endeavour prawns.

Latitude opened a small store in Marine Terrace to sell its products direct to the public in 1989, moving to the Fishermen’s Wharf in 1999. The by-product of prawn fishing, Moreton Bay Bugs, Squid, Cuttlefish and Reef Fish fillets became great sellers in the shop.

Recently, Latitude has sold many of their vessels and licenses as a result of changes in the fishing industry. Latitude now sources all its products from suppliers well known to the company ensuring the best quality products are sold at LATITUDE DIRECT. We take great pride in supplying Australian wild caught product.

Freshly cooked prawns available daily.
