Family history

Bob Puglisi and son Andrew, are 5th and 6th generation fishermen, who have been at the leading edge of contemporary fisheries in Australia over the past 40 years. With a rich heritage of both fishing and cooking from their homeland in Southern Italy, the Puglisi family know that the unique waters fed by the Great Southern Ocean, and the sunny Mediterranean climate of the West Coast of South Australia could produce some of the finest shellfish in the world.

As pioneers of both the Spencer Gulf Southern Prawn fishery (respected globally as a shining example of sustainable fishery management) and the farming of the mighty Southern Bluefin Tuna they have built an enviable reputation as being amongst the most visionary members of the seafood community.

Kinkawooka Shellfish’s reputation for producing quality seafood has been enhanced with the development of their mussel farming operation in Boston Bay, with the commissioning of an integrated mussel farm and land based processing facility, which is without peer in Australia.

Hey South Oz crew. We have been having an awesome time filming "the paleo way" series 2 in the Eyre Peninsula these last two days and want to thank you for your guys rock! We have filmed at the Olssen salt farm (amazing), as well as with pugs at Kinkawooka mussels and Greg from Spencer Gulf King Prawns (wild caught) and cooking up some delicious food! If you are keen on joining us at the paleo way tour in Port Lincoln on Friday night, or on Sunday in Adelaide then jump onto and remember that everyone that comes to the show gets a free 10 week program that has the potential to be a game changer to so many lives. Luke and I hop to see you there.
