WA seafood retailers love to support our local fishers. Ask at your local retailer when next shopping if they have any in stock. It’s always a good idea to call ahead to check on stock levels and whether they have live and cooked, depending on your requirements. You can find western rock lobsters stocked at the following retailers: 

  • Catalano’s Seafood (Booragoon-Whitfords)
  • Catalano’s Factory Direct (Bassendean)
  • Seafresh Fish Market (Innaloo-Claremont-Myaree)
  • Effie’s Gourmet (Morley), Poseidon Seafood (Malaga)
  • Kailis Bros Fish Market (Leederville)
  • Burswood Seafood (Burswood)
  • WestnFresh Seafood (Cockburn Central).


Keep in touch with seafood suppliers at your local Farmers’ Market. Check their social pages for weekly locations and ring ahead to make sure they have stock on the day you plan to visit. For example, the Kombination Seafood van, which only sells sustainably caught seafood, can be found at markets such as Perth City Farm and Freo Farmers Market.


Locate lobsters in both independent and specialty grocery stores, as well as select IGA stores, Farmer Jack’s, and the Boatshed Market in Cottesloe.


If you are stretched for time, you might find the easiest way to shop for frozen lobsters is from select Woolworths and Coles supermarkets. Ask in your local store to see if they stock locally caught western rock lobster.


If you are planning a large gathering or are a business that needs to source western rock lobsters in larger quantities, try the wholesale buying opportunities from a processor or exporter by visiting Western Rock Lobster.

By choosing western rock lobster, you are supporting local businesses to continue providing premium, wild-caught, and sustainable rock lobsters for generations to come.
