Fisheries Minister Dave Kelly is encouraging Perth people to vote for their favourite fish and chip shop in the National Fish and Chips awards.

In the first year of the National Fish and Chips Awards, Ocean and Paddock in Albany came second.

This year, Mr Kelly would like to see a WA fish and chip shop take out the number one spot (click here to vote).

In week three of voting Ocean and Paddock in Albany is number one, followed by Kiwi Fish and Chips in Duncraig.

“Western Australians love fish and chips whether it be for a beach picnic on a sunny day or a special family treat,” Mr Kelly said.

“What makes our fish and chips standout from other places around Australia and the world is our high-quality and sustainable fisheries that produce delicious seafood.

“In WA there are plenty of fresh and tasty options, whether it be one of the snappers, some Spanish Mackerel, emperor from our North-West or West Coast fisheries or perhaps bronze whaler or gummy shark from the South Coast.”

As well as the people’s choice awards, more than 20 judges are crisscrossing the country right now judging hundreds of Australia’s fish and chip shops to look for the tastiest meal, the best choice, the best service, information and presentation.

Voting ends on September 15, 2018 and winners will be announced on October 15, 2018.
