Back to Product Guide


Skull Island is an island in Australia’s Northern Territory and it’s where the biggest tiger prawns in Australia’s Northern Prawn Fishery are caught. It 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.

Caught, packed, and snap frozen at sea from the pristine waters of Australia’s Gulf of Carpentaria, thus ensuring the eating characteristics of Skull Island tiger prawns remain intact until they are enjoyed on the plate.

Tiger prawns from Skull Island in the Gulf of Carpentaria are the biggest you can find in Australia!
