Way up north where the tides rage,
Cone bay barra swim against the massive tides from inside their sea pens. they are perhaps the fittest fish on earth, which is why their fat - and fat is what barramundi flavour is all about - is spread evenly throughout the body (their laidback estuarine cousins have pot bellies in comparison). then there's the clean, briny flavour and clear opaque flesh: a consequence of a life lived in the warm waters of the indian ocean north of derby... it's the best barra i've eaten.
