Skull Island MSC Tiger Prawns 180g

$12.99 each


Skull Island is an island in Australia’s Northern Territory region and it’s where we catch the biggest tiger prawns in Australia’s Northern Prawn Fishery.

Caught, packed and snap frozen at sea from the pristine waters of Australia’s Gulf of Carpentaria ensures that the prawn’s eating characteristics remain intactall the way from the ocean to your plate.

Skull Island is part of the Sir Edward Pellew Group of islands in King Ash Bay at the mouth of the McArthur River. The inshore protected waters adjacent to Skull Island provide the ideal habitat for tiger prawns. Large expansive seagrass beds, strong tidal movement and ample food allow juvenile tiger prawns to grow to sizes selected for the Skull Island brand.


Certified ‘sustainable’ by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), Skull Island tiger prawns come from the world’s first certified sustainable tropical prawn fishery. They are caught during the months of August to November each year, and only caught during the night to ensure minimal impact on bycatch. The remainder of the year is closed to fishing to ensure juvenile tiger prawns have ample time to grow into adults and reproduce.

Skull Island Tiger Prawns are now also completely carbon neutral, with Austral Fisheries being certified under the Australian Government Carbon Neutral Program.

Dear Valued Customer,

We have unfortunately experienced disruptions to our supply chain this week from COVID-19.

Chicken is in very short supply across the country and our primary herbs/lettuce greens supplier has had to close for a week. We have made items unavailable that are out of stock for the time being and will do our best to secure short-supplied items for you. 

As always, we will endeavour to contact you via phone or text message for substitutes should your selection be unavailable.

Thank you for your patience and support throughout this challenging time.

Warm regards,
Wholefoods House Online Team
