Rockliff Seafoods was founded in 2007 by Neville Rockliff, his wife Helen, and their four children. Based on the picturesque Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Rockliff Seafood specializes in catching and processing premium Australian seafood, namely Rockliff Spanner Crab (Ceas) which is sustainably caught in the local tropical waters.
The Rockliff Family is originally from Tasmania where they have been supplying premium quality seafood products out of Queensland and Tasmania for local and export markets for more than 40 years.
Tetsuya’s appreciation for fresh produce has helped forge the unique relationship he shares with the Rockliff family. Neville Rockliff, says Tetsuya has been “family” for years and their further collaboration crystallises years of history and friendship.
“Tetsuya and I talk about everything together. He has become my best mate and he even calls my mother and father ‘Mum’ and ‘Dad’,” said Neville.
Rockliff Spanner crab (Ceas) is 100% Spanner Crab meat, hand picked out of the shell. The unique production process has been developed over a number of years, in collaboration with Tetsuya Wakuda and his support and knowledge ensures that Rockliff Spanner Crab (Ceas) provides a truly distinctive taste sensation. With its sweet, white flesh and firm texture, it truly is Australia’s sweetest seafood.
The Queensland Spanner Crab was the first Queensland fishery to be announced as sustainable by the Australian Government under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act. Rockliff Seafoods’ vision is to provide the best possible quality Australian seafood in a sustainable way and is dedicated to keeping this industry sustainable for many years to come.
