If quality counts; count on TomKat. We are a boutique family fishing business and are passionate about providing our clients with the best quality reef fish available on the market today. We proudly catch, process and market our own line caught first class reef fish and guarantee that you will be 100% satisfied with your purchase. We are Queensland Safe Food accredited and proudly support the Queensland Catch Club: "Ask is it local?" and insist on Queensland Catch.

When Tom returns from a trip, we fillet, cryocac and blast freeze our fish at -40°C in our own custom built processing room which we operate at 14°C. It is then stored, prior to sale, in our display freezers which maintain a temperature of -23°C.

We have portion packs of fillets to suit all size families and budgets. Red Emperor, Coral Trout, Saddletail Snapper, Rosy Snapper and plenty of other quality reef fish are usually available.
Planning a special event or occasion and prefer your fish whole or not frozen at all? Just contact us in advance, so we can cater for your requirements.

The Art of Iki Jime:
At TomKat Linefish, our level of care begins in the sea. How our fish is caught, dispatched and stored while Tom is still on the boat is what helps to make our fish the very best fish you will ever taste.

Ike Jime is a method of paralysing and bleeding fish to maintain its quality. The technique originated in Japan, but is now in widespread use throughout better fisheries around the world. Using the technique of Iki jime to dispatch of his catch dramatically improves the eating and keeping qualities of our fish at TomKat Linefish.
Iki jime, pronounced "Icky Jimmy" involves the insertion of a spike quickly and directly into the hindbrain of a fish, killing the fish instantly. It is very quick and effective and scientists agree that it is the fastest and most humane way to dispatch fish. We reduce the amount of stress placed on the fish, reduces the amount of lactic acid produced by the fish. This results in fish which taste much sweeter, have a far superior quality flesh and a longer fridge life.
The taste of an Ike Jime fish is more refined, with complex notes. Ike Jime is not just marketing hype - it is the real deal in delivering the best eating fish.

Red Emperor:
Did you know that the Red Emperor (Lutjanus sebae) is not really an Emperor? They are actually a member of the Snappers and Seaperches family Lutjanidae which includes other well-known species such as Mangrove Jack (Lutjanus argentimaculatus), Maori Sea Perch (Lutjanus rivulatus) and Saddletail Snapper (Lutjanus malabaricus).

Red Emperor are one of the most prized catches on the Barrier Reef and other reefs throughout its tropical habitat. They are a stunning fish to catch both in colour and on the table. Highly regarded as one of the most esteemed of all Australian reef fish, Red Emperor challenge Coral Trout to the title of most valued of all Australian tropical seas fish.

These magnificent fish elude a lot of recreational and commercial anglers, but at TomKat Linefish, they are our signature fish, and will certainly be a welcome guest at your dinner table.

Coral Trout:
Coral Trout (Plectropomus leopardus) are, of course, not a trout at all but a fierce reef dwelling predator. They are one of Australia's most highly prized tropical reef fish with eating qualities considered to be among the very best of all the tropical reef fish caught in Australia.

Goldband Snapper:
If Coral Trout and Red Emperor are the jewels in the crown, Goldband Snapper, (Pristipomoides multidens) is definitely the gold. Sharing the Lutjanidae family with Red Emperor and Mangrove Jack, the Goldband Snapper is a fish worth trying.

A medium priced fish makes them very affordable for every-day eating. They are a very versatile fish with a mild to medium flavoured firm flesh. Great for BBQ, pan frying, grilling or steaming.

If you need fish and quality counts; count on TomKat. Proudly fishing sustainably.
