Thanks for the kind words, Jim. A pretty bleak background is the Nyrstar zinc processing plant! There's a local companyy called Petuna Seafoods, based in North Hobart, so I guess she belongs to that firm and provides them with seafood.

Cheers!

Walter,

I have heard of Petuna Seafoods, they had a stern trawler built in Port Adelaide in the early nineties, I think named the Petuna Rose, they do have a web site Walter and quite informative, do a Google Search and it will respond quickly with the link to their homepage.

Jim.
