West Coast Region

The West Coast region is exposed to the full fury of the Southern Ocean. Defined by its high energy environment, the water is cool and pristine and large scale water currents have enormous influence on water temperature and chemistry. The West Coast is the epitome of remote; characterised by sheer sandstone cliffs and granite outcrops engaged in a relentless battle with the sea. Long sandy surf beaches bear witness to this war of attrition. Together with the sandy bays, rocky coves, reef and island chains, this environment supports a unique variety of Marine Scalefish produce.

Key ports include: Coffin Bay, Streaky Bay, Elliston and Ceduna.
