EXPLORE THE SPECIES

PRAWNSS

Prawns are crustaceans from the order Decapoda, meaning 'ten-legged' (or technically, 'ten-footed'). Their sweet taste and firm texture make them ideal for many dishes, and they are sold fresh or frozen, raw or cooked. 

Wild prawns are fished all over the world, in the Atlantic, Pacific, Arctic and Indian Oceans.

Australia's prawn fisheries have developed a range of bycatch reduction devices to reduce the amount of other fish and marine species caught in prawn trawling nets, including turtle excluder devices (TEDs) which allow turtles, sharks and rays to safely escape from nets. More than half of wild-caught prawns in Australia are now MSC certified. This is important, as in many cases they are found in areas of particular ecological significance, and fishing methods must not damage the delicate environmental balance.

TUNA

One of Australia’s favourite seafood and one of the most economically valuable. 

Tuna can be found in the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans, as well as the Mediterranean Sea.

Many populations are healthy and being fished sustainably (around 25% of global tuna catch are currently MSC certified). Australia leads the world in sales of tuna with the globally recognised MSC blue fish tick, accounting for 24% of worldwide sales. Tuna are some of the fastest swimmers in the ocean. Some yellowfin tuna has had burst speeds recorded of around 50 km/h.

PIPIS

Whether steamed on the BBQ, smothered in butter and garlic, or tossed through spaghetti with chilli and lemon, savvy chefs and seafood lovers alike are hooked, and the humble pipi's popularity is growing exponentially. 

Pipis also knows as Australian cockle (Donax deltoides) are found in the surf zone from southern Queensland to the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. 

Goolwa pipis are collected by hand using rakes and a technique known as the ‘pipi shuffle’ which has been used for generations. This well-known art has kept technology at bay, ensuring that beach craft and sustainability reign supreme. Pipis have provided local communities with sustenance for thousands of years.

tooTHFISH

Both Patagonian toothfish and Antarctic toothfish have white, flaky, moist flesh which is highly sought after by chefs for its versatility and Omega 3 fatty acids. 

Toothfish, also known as Chilean seabass, live in deep waters in the southern oceans near Antarctica. 

Glacier 51 Toothfish won the MSC’s Best Sustainable Seafood Product 2020 for being the world’s first carbon-neutral fish. Glacier 51 is served up at top restaurants across Australia like Nobu, Sake and Rockpool and is available in specialty seafood retailers. Toothfish have long been studied for their ability to produce anti-freeze proteins that keep their blood from crystallising in the Southern Ocean, where water temperatures can dip below zero.

SALMON

Salmon is arguably Australia’s favourite fish to eat. It is highly valued due to its nutritional value, providing essential omega-3 fatty acids, high-quality protein and a variety of vitamins and minerals.   

There are seven known species of Pacific salmon found in North American and Asian waters, and one species of Atlantic salmon, which is mainly farmed. 

Wild Alaskan salmon are harvested by nets (drift and set gillnets, purse seine), trolling and fishwheels. Trolling is fishing by drawing a baited line or lure behind a boat. A fishwheel operates much like a water-powered mill wheel: fish travelling upstream are caught in baskets on the wheel, then transferred into a holding tank. The term ‘salmon’ derives from the Latin word ‘salmo,’ which is said to have originated from ‘salire’, which means ‘to leap’. This seems fitting considering salmon can jump up to two metres to cross obstacles in rivers.

HOKI

Hoki flesh is delicate, succulent, and tastes slightly sweet, producing a medium flake once cooked. It is more flavourful than most other white fish because of its higher fat content but is still relatively mild tasting. 

Hoki (Macruronus novaezelandiae), also known as blue grenadier, live in the waters around southern Australia and New Zealand. 

Between 1995 and 2000, Hoki populations declined due to low recruitment - there were fewer new fish of the required size and age. New improvement action plans on stock rebuilding were therefore introduced. Hoki is a fast-growing fish, living for 20-25 years and can grow to over a metre in length.

In 2000, Western Australia’s rock lobster fishers became the first in the world to achieve MSC certification. Over two decades on, and despite challenges, the fishery continues to flourish.
