Austral Fisheries is synonymous with Australia’s finest sustainable seafood; a reputation the company has built over the last 50 years in its pursuit of excellence, innovation, and quality.
Austral’s wild-caught, carbon neutral seafood brands include the award-winning Glacier 51 Toothfish, caught in the sub-Antarctic and prized by leading chefs for its incredible flavour, rich omega-3 content, and genuine versatility; and Skull Island Tiger Prawns and Karumba Banana Prawns, both caught for just a few months of the year in the waters of Northern Queensland’s pristine Gulf of Carpentaria.
Underpinning these brands are stories of provenance, sustainability, culinary excellence, and generations of passionate fishing families. Austral’s commitment to sustainability can be traced right back through the company’s heritage; as the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) was forming in 1997, Austral were eager supporters thanks to a shared vision for a more sustainable and well-managed seafood industry. Today, 100% of Austral’s wild-caught seafood is MSC certified.
In 2016, Austral took sustainability to new heights, becoming the world’s first carbon neutral seafood business, certified by the Australian Government’s ‘Climate Active’ carbon neutral program.
