Our Story...

Fisherman’s Daughter is owned and operated by father and son team, Daniel and Carlos Tumataroa.


Daniel brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team. In the 70’s he worked in a small New Zealand town called Wairoa in a fish and chip shop. He has successfully created, owned and operated in such enterprises such as Riverdale Foods in Gisborn NZ, One Ocean Oyster, and Mussel Shop and purchased and run numerous other ventures in the industry.

Daniel has a much valued and loved reputation amongst his family and friends, he is happiest when in the kitchen cooking up a storm, he serves his dishes with passion and love.


Daniel’s eldest son, Carlos, shares his father's passion for serving great quality fresh produce while working in the seafood industry.

The family relocated to Australia from New Zealand in 2005, determined to supply Australia with the best fish n chip experience available to the market with the launch of Fisherman’s Daughter, Australia and New Zealand’s Finest Seafood’s.

With this, father and son have worked together side by side for the past 15 years and remain the best of mates. To hear them cooking and serving up such great food at Fisherman’s Daughter, a dine-in experience not to be missed. And the third generation with one of Fisherman’s grandson’s already on the team. Delightful to see him sharing his father and grandfather’s vision for the long jeopardy of Fisherman’s Daughter.
