nose to tail of fishing

We were lucky enough to meet Glen and Tracey Hill, who own and self-operate Wild Coorong Seafood, and experience for ourselves a day in the life of a fisherman and the challenges faced within the fishing industry.

Glen Hill has been a fisherman for nearly 25 years and in business as a fisherman on the Coorong inlet for the past 10 years. His vast level of experience is evident from his rather impressive beard, but more so from his extensive knowledge of the Coorong and the fishing industry in general. Glen sets out early each morning (in order to beat the pelicans) to pull in nets from different parts of the Coorong which catch mullet, mulloway and bream. Day to day fishing can vary although Glen tries to target 5 boxes of mullet a day in a series of nets.
