Murray Cod Australia Limited (MCA), is the company that owns Aquna Sustainable Murray Cod. MCA is a vertically-integrated producer of Murray cod. With strong domestic and global demand for sustainably-farmed Murray cod, we are well-positioned to be a dominant supplier of the native Australian fish.
Based in the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (MIA) in southern New South Wales, Australia, Aquna represents a collective of local irrigators, who have diversified into aquaculture – the world’s fastest growing food production sector*.
Given aquaculture of Murray cod is in its infancy, there is significant growth potential. For investors, Murray Cod Australia Limited is an attractive investment proposition.

Murray cod is sought-after as a table fish in domestic and export markets, including Asia.
Quality price premium
Higher prices are paid for Murray cod, when compared with than other farmed species in Australia and Asia, because of the premium quality of the flesh – firm, white-fleshed fish with gelatinous qualities, that make it the best steaming fish in the world.
Expanded value chain
By managing all aspects of the value chain, including hatchery, nursery and grow out ponds, we control traceability, quality and profit margins from the process of growing fish. That’s why many high-margin customers are prepared to pay a premium for our Murray cod.
Our fish are grown sustainably in their natural habitat, using existing agricultural resources. The same water can be used twice, first in the fish ponds, then the nutrient-enriched water is used to irrigate crops. We integrate sustainable practices throughout our operations.
Unlike many of other fish species, there is no wild catch of Murray cod. They grow in no other river system in the world, and there are very few Murray cod producers to act as competition.
