About Us

The Tapley family have been fishing Spencer Gulf and surrounding waters for three generations, with Anne and Graham joined by their two children Joe and Meghan running a respected and successful enterprise from Port Lincoln on Eyre Peninsula. 

Spanning over 35 years, the Tapley family have worked in the rock lobster, shark and tuna longline industries, with their export facility ‘Australian Southern Exporters’ becoming one of South Australia’s largest exporters of live rock lobster. 

They diversified into processing sardines and Australian Salmon from their Port Lincoln factory and most recently, secured a licence to fish for Spencer Gulf King Prawns.

They are proud to be one of 39 licence holders in the Spencer Gulf King Prawn fishery - bringing premium quality prawns, direct to you.

The Prawn Store is a convenient way to buy quality. From our family to yours, thank you for purchasing 100% South Australian product to enjoy.
