They are a beautiful prawn from a well-managed fishery that has travelled around the world to be on your plate. Find out more about the Spencer Gulf wild king prawn fishery here. They have a lighter colour than farmed Asian tiger prawns and a pretty blue tail.  These prawns are 'snap' frozen very soon after being caught to ensure they stay at their height of freshness. You will find that these prawns offer a sweet, deeper flavour than the farmed Asian alternative. This is most likely due to their natural ocean diet. The vein in these prawns isn't too imposing but if it does bother you, just snip down the tail and pull it out. These prawns are frozen into a shallow bed of water to keep them static inside their box and ensure they're pristine when defrosted.
