Founded in 1993 by Les and Lyn Apps
A whole lot of heart in those crabs
Fishing stalwarts Les and Lyn Apps commenced spanner crab fishing back in 1993. Fraser Isle Spanner Crabs is based on the Sunshine Coast, the global home of the spanner crab.
We harvest solely from the pristine waters of Fraser Isle, 80 kilometres south of the Great Barrier Reef. Sharing with you the sweet taste of the spanner crabs,
our promise to our crabs, and to you
Sustainability is at the heart of Fraser Isle Spanner Crabs with zero- by-catch during the fishing process. All aspects of the crab are utilised in our product range. We strive to extract every essence of sweet flavour from every single crab.
From deckhand to processing, all of the Fraser Isle Spanner Crabs team have a shared commitment to quality and sustainability, to deliver that sweet taste of spanner crab that you can really count on.
