We’re excited to announce that Aquna Sustainable Murray Cod (Aquna) has been recognised for our commitment to sustainability, winning the Excellence in Sustainability Award – one of 14 categories at the NSW Business Chamber Murray-Riverina Awards.
Announced at a gala event in Temora, the award win is a tribute to the whole Aquna team who are dedicated to setting the environmental sustainability benchmark globally for the aquaculture industry.
For Director Roger Commins, it was an honour to accept the award.
“At Aquna, we want to have a positive impact on people’s plates and the planet,” Mr Commins said. “We are very proud to be recognised for such a prestigious award amongst a pool of incredible and diverse finalists.”
Aquna Managing Director Mat Ryan said that since listing on the stock exchange in January 2017, the entire Aquna team have set their sights on finding a better way to deliver food security through sustainable aquaculture.
“In a relatively short period of time, we have managed to implement world-leading sustainable practices across our entire business,” he said.
Aquna’s recent sustainability achievements include:

Aquna will now proceed to the NSW finals, which will be announced at a Gala Dinner on Friday 22 November at ICC Sydney.
