To stop the spread of White

To stop the spread of White Spot disease, totally harmless to humans but would wipe out out prawn stocks

Go better than uncooked as well.

Just wondering how many

Tue, 2019-03-26 21:21

Just wondering how many people buy Australian bacon as well. I was surprised that approximately 90% of the bacon in the supermarkets is imported. The imported stuff is cheap as but the Aussie bacon tastes a shitload better imo.

We get a prawn trawler

Tue, 2019-03-26 14:20

We get a prawn trawler through here a couple of times a year so always get our raw prawns for eating from them. Usually end up as bait prawns as well towards end of box, cheaper than bait prawns.

Local???

Tue, 2019-03-26 18:24

 Most of the trawlers in Shark Bay and Exmouth freeze their prawns on board then send them overseas to be processed then sent back so who knows what conditions the processing takes place in and what is added
