The Shark Bay Prawn Fishery is the largest prawn fishery in Western Australia. It is located off the mid-west coast of WA, 800km north of Perth.

Shark Bay is a World Heritage Site, inscribed by UNESCO to the World Heritage list in 1991. It is one of only a handful of places on earth that ticks all 4 criteria for natural listing. See our World Heritage section for further details.

Our fishery was established in 1962 and has operated under a detailed and sophisticated management regime ever since. As you would expect from a fishery situated within a World Heritage Area, strict controls ensure the sustainability of our fishery for generations to come.

Western King Prawns and Brown Tiger Prawns are the major species caught by this fishery.  Western King Prawns make up the majority of the catch. Small volumes of Endeavour and Coral prawns are also available.  When choosing your prawns, ask for Shark Bay by name – you can be sure of fantastic tasting, sustainable, Australian seafood.

Shark Bay Wild has recently received Marine Stewardship Council certification as a sustainable fishery - read the full story here.


Chefs for the Gascoyne was a fundraising event held in the Perth Cultural Centre in April 2015 to support the devastated Gascoyne Region in the wake of Cyclone Olwyn. Shark Bay Prawns were proud supporters of this event and donated Shark Bay Wild Prawns for Organising Chef Peter Manifis to prepare.
