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.

I used to go fishing for these alot off the rocks.I just used a small hook and running sinker with abalone gut for bait and lots of burley: bread ,greenweed and sand mixture

Big net

We fished in a secret gutter off the rocks near Manyana NSW! My father swore by peeling the prawns we used for bait... we used a float with large beach rods.... they love some mushed up bread for burleigh too (he said to throw it in a gutter if possible... after the set of waves have hit the rocks and made the white wash... thats when we would through the line in... they love the white wash)

Two hooks about ten cm. Apart. You bait the top one only. Feel the little suck bite, jerk line, bottom hook snags them in the belly. That stops them farting in church....

Nice one mate

Fished for drummer off fingal headlands for school sports 👍🏻

Niiiice
