Certified Sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council

Marine Stewardship Council

At Austral Fisheries, we believe that employing sustainable fishing practises is a non-negotiable. This begins with taking care of the fisheries that we operate in, so that they remain healthy and viable for future generations. That is why we have actively sought out what we believe to be the gold standard in independent fishery certification, the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), and put our fisheries up to the test.

Our four major Australian fisheries that we operate in have been certified by the MSC as sustainable and well managed fisheries. These are:



Certified Climate Active & Carbon Neutral

Carbon Neutral & Climate Active

In 2016 we made the decision to take our sustainability commitment to the next level. We recognised that while we were doing real and impactful work to maintain and improve the sustainability of our fisheries, we were simultaneously consuming a large amount of diesel fuel; in the ballpark of 9 million litres. Something had to be done, and so we took the next step in our sustainability journey. We're proud to say that since 2016, we've been certified as carbon neutral as an organisation, and for the wild capture fish and prawn products we catch and sell, all the way from ocean to plate.

Carbon neutrality, or having no carbon footprint, refers to achieving a net zero carbon emission by balancing the amount of carbon released from our business, with an equivalent amount sequestered, or offset. We are also committed to transitioning to 100% renewable energy across our Australian offices by 2025.
