Due to the new COVID-19 Government Mandated regulations we are now only able to provide takeaway meals.

All of our tables and chairs have been removed and whilst ordering in store, we respectfully request all of our customers abide by the Social Distancing rules both to protect other customers and our staff.

Over the next week we are going to start offering a home delivery service from Tewantin to Sunshine Beach for people who are self-isolating or who don't want to be out in public. This service will attract a $5 delivery fee to cover the costs of this service. Please be patient with us as it has to be properly set-up and staff trained so that the product that arrives at your door is of the best quality.

While it is very hard for our staff to practice Social Distancing at work with each other, they have been told that they must do it outside of work. At work they are all using Antibacterial Hand Wash, gloves and all surfaces are being cleaned with a strong industrial sanitiser. We are doing our best to protect both staff and customers.

We thank all of our customers for their continued patronage and look forward to the time when we are thru these uncharted waters.

Stay well from the team at the RED EMPEROR

Atlantic Salmon


Atlantic Salmon look similar in body shape to that of the brown trout, however with a slightly more slender body and smaller head. It also has a more forked tail and more silvery colouration. Native fish have a dark green or blue green back with silver sides. As it enters the inland waters it turns more bronze colour or dark brown. Landlocked fish (as in Australia) lack the silver colouration of the native fish found overseas. In its native habitat the Atlantic Salmon can grow as large as nearly 30 kgs.


The Atlantic Salmon is native to the northern Atlantic from Connecticut River to Quebec, Iceland and southern Greenland. It also occurs naturally from the Arctic Circle to Portugal. It has been introduced into lakes and rivers worldwide. In Australia it has been introduced with limited success in some rivers, lakes and dams in Southern New South Wales. Mainly confined to Monaro, Lake Jindabyne and Thredbo River.
