December update: Sardines from Port Phillip Bay now available – New producer on board
The last commercial net fishers in Port Phillip Bay, Phil McAdam and his daughter Kate, are now on the Two Hands marketplace, bringing their delicious, fresh-from-the-water sardines, caught with minimal impact, to Melbourne restaurants. Unfortunately, under blanket legislation passed by the Victorian State Parliament, all commercial net fishing in Port Phillip Bay will be removed by April 2022. This will see the end of locally caught sardines being available in Melbourne restaurants, and no locally caught bait for Port Phillip Bay recreational fishers. We don’t think this should happen. Do your part by buying some of Phil’s delicious sardines and sharing the story of this sustainably-managed local sardine.
