All new Seafood Escape
with Andrew Ettingshausen

There’s more to great seafood than just what you see on your plate. Wild water warrior Andrew “ET” Ettingshausen teams up with some of Australia’s toughest professional fishing crews and most creative chefs to reveal the whole journey from ocean depths to the heights of culinary delight.

Seafood Escapes is a six part series showing the action and adventure of how sustainable seafood is sourced from the seas and bays around Australia. It goes the extra step to show how that seafood becomes a part of our national cuisine. In the manner of Gourmet Farmer and Surfing the Menu, Seafood Escapes gets down and dirty – and wet – working out where our food originally comes from, then follows it all the way to the plate in interesting workaday and trendy restaurant settings. And along the way, it takes viewers to some of the most scenic coastal communities ever seen on television.

Each of the six half-hour episodes is set in a different state of Australia. It sets the scene of the coastal community which is the destination for this week’s seafood escape, then introduces the local fishing skippers and crews – and crucially, a local chef and his or her restaurant – who are the real stars of each show.

SUPPORTED BY THE FRDC

FISHERIES RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION

300dpi_frdc_200The Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC) is a co-funded partnership between its two stakeholders, the Australian Government and the fishing industry. The FRDC has a significant responsibility in ensuring, on behalf of the Australian Government, that research is undertaken to assist in the management of the fisheries and aquaculture resource for ongoing sustainability.

This means that a significant proportion of funding is directed at research that has a benefit for the three sectors of the fishing industry: commercial (wild catch and aquaculture), recreational and indigenous and also delivers a public good benefit to the Australian community.

Seafood Escape is supported by funding from the FRDC on behalf of the Australian Government.

Loads of Yellowtail in the port hacking river at the moment. Great for catching Flathead, Mulloway and Kingfish.

Trolling deep diving killalures was the secret to catching some tasty Bonito. Chef Paul Breheny took this Bonito back to cook up a delicious seafood dish that was filmed and is coming up in a future segment in our current series 18.

The weather has been so calm we headed out past Jibbon Bombie to a depth of around 42 metres where we found a patch of Sand Flathead. At 30 metres there are tons of Leatherjacket so head out a bit wider if you want to catch some flathead.
