The NZ Century Battery team enjoyed the fishing competition. 1500 entrants had a great time catching Snapper and Kingfish. The biggest Snapper was just on a metre and around 12 kilo an absolute monster. Century Yuasa Batteries

We caught a few red rock cod which the boys kept and cooked up for dinner. An ugly fish which you must handle with care as they have poisoned spines but taste like lobster. Century Yuasa Batteries

A nice size John Dory latched onto a live yellowtail I was aiming for Kings. They are extremely slow moving and have a super soft mouth with no teeth. Great to eat though. Century Yuasa Batteries

All New Seafood Escape

With Andrew Ettingshausen

There’s more to great seafood than just what you see on your plate. Andrew “ET” Ettingshausen teams up with some of Australia’s toughest professional fishing crews and most creative chefs to reveal the whole journey from ocean depths to the heights of culinary delight.


Seafood Escapes is a six part series showing the action and adventure of how sustainable seafood is sourced from the seas and bays around Australia. It goes the extra step to show how that seafood becomes a part of our national cuisine.

In the manner of Gourmet Farmer and Surfing the Menu, Seafood Escapes gets down and dirty – and wet – working out where our food originally comes from, then follows it all the way to the plate in interesting workaday and trendy restaurant settings. And along the way, it takes viewers to some of the most scenic coastal communities ever seen on television.
