Words by Jodie Powell

Straight from the trawler – that’s where Morgans Seafood sources its bounty and with Easter just around the corner, it’s the go-to place for discerning customers.

The family-owned business is synonymous with freshness, a reputation forged since the business opened at Scarborough Boat Harbour in 1986.

And it’s not hard to source fresh seafood when the trawlers are moored just out the back.

Morgans’ Julie Hansson has worked there for 13 years and says Morgans, which has a fish market, takeaway outlet, sushi bar and oyster bar, has a strong connection with South East Queensland.

“We’re known for fresh Australian seafood. That’s what we’ve consistently supplied,” Julie says.

“Lots of people have memories of the ceramic pelican that used to be here. Most people on the Redcliffe peninsula can give you a memory they have of being here.”

But customers are not limited to the peninsula or the Moreton Bay Region, they travel from across South East Queensland in search of the best quality.

A favourite with regulars

The seafood outlet is a hive of activity during peak times, particularly at Easter and Christmas, with customers happy to take their place in the queue and wait to be served.

Staff work hard to get to them quickly and their processes have evolved to make it happen.

Demand continues to break records, with customers stocking up on prawns, oysters and Moreton Bay bugs.

“The prawns are just delicious. It’s a (Moreton Bay) flavour that we’re used to,” Julie says.

“We have regular customers who buy fish every week. This was more prevalent during COVID, when meat was in short supply. We’ve retained a lot of regular customers since then.”

Owners Peter Michaels and Roan Van Graan have a passion for using only the best quality.

The team sources the best seafood from local commercial fishers and trawlers, while reef fish comes from further afield.

Easter is the perfect opportunity for seafood lovers to spoil themselves and share the bounty with their families.

There is no need to pre-order at Morgans, where you’ll find the biggest variety of seafood in Queensland. Visit Morgans Seafood at Bird O'Passage Pde, Scarborough, and see what’s on offer.

The team will be ready to serve thousands of customers on Thursday, April 6; Good Friday and Easter Saturday.
