4 Burswood Seafood
This seafood sensation admittedly, has had its doors open since October of 1988. Burswood seafood is best known for its fresh seafood range, and the snapped frozen products as well. With over 120 products on the line, there is no denying you won’t find what you’re looking for when it comes to seafood and everything in between.
Burswood Seafood is open every day from 8 am – 6 pm, excluding some public holidays. Unfortunately, even though Burswood seafood has been up and running for quite some time. I don’t think many people take much notice of this diamond in the rough. Many people opt and buy their seafood products from ‘larger’ brands. Basically to ‘follow the crowd’.
Not only does Burswood seafood have a large building to showcase their seafood. But, they also have two trucks that have gotten set up in Crawley, and Guildford. to buy fresh produce from your area of choice.
Burswood Seafood websites set out very clean and are easy to locate what you need from prawns, fish fillets, whole fish, crustaceans to molluscs. They sell products like lobster tails, Morton bay bugs, octopus, oysters and even delicacies like silverfish and NZ flounder.
