Congratulations to our CEO David Carter who is the worthy recipient of the Marine Stewardship Council's 'Lifetime Achievement Award.'
David has dedicated his entire working career (over 40 years!) to advancing and promoting the seafood industry. His particular focus has been on sustainable, science-based fisheries management and preserving the natural environment. In this time David has seen Austral Fisheries become MSC certified for its key fisheries, he's fought against illegal toothfish poachers, he's seen the introduction of Austral's premium branded products in Glacier 51 Toothfish and Skull Island Prawns, and he's led Austral to becoming to world's first carbon neutral seafood business; among many other things.
Congratulations, David. The Australian seafood industry has been fortunate to have you as a key champion for sustainable seafood for so many years.
