Sustainable farming

We’ve joined with other top barramundi farmers across Australia to change the future of barramundi in Australia.

We’re passionate about Aussie produce, sustainably farmed here at home for generations to come.

Look for our golden tick of approval for farms you can trust to meet the highest Australian standards and approved by the Australian Sustainably Farmed Barramundi Certification Program.

Australian barramundi is good for you, good for the environment and good for our Aussie farmers. Hop on board, join the movement and don’t forget to #askforaussiebarra

The Kuku Yalanji people are the Indigenous inhabitants of the land from south of Port Douglas to Cooktown in the north and Palmer River in the west.  They are true rainforest people with a history dating back over 50,000 years, and their culture in built around a deep respect for nature and an intimate knowledge of its cycles.

Their knowledge has been passed down through generations, and you can share their dreamtime legends, culture and traditions by taking a Kuku Yalanji Dreamtime Walk at the spectacular Mossman Gorge.
