You may have read about our sustainability performance and our sustainability awards. Aquna is listed as green in the GoodFish: Australia’s Sustainable seafood guide. In a sneak peek of our new video series, you can take a tour of Aquna’s sustainable farm in 2023!

    In this video, Mat Ryan, our managing director, explains the importance of our industry-leading sustainability practices on our grow out farms in the Riverina: “Aquna’s goal has been to set the benchmark and be one of the most sustainable aquaculture producers in the world.” 

    Iconic fish master and chef Josh Niland speaks about why Aquna’s sustainable ethos is important to him: “Sustainability is the backbone of the business, which is where we’re really aligned.” In recent months, we’ve been sharing the many and varied Aquna recipes Josh has created to give home cooks inspiration to enjoy our fish.

    Recap: Aquna’s sustainability highlights

    Feed conversion ratio (1.5:1): Lowest for all major protein groups.

    Water reuse: Our land-based production model uses the same water twice once through our fish ponds and then for irrigation or pasture on farms. 100% recycled.

    Zero organic waste: Our Griffith-based processing plant diverts tonnes of organic waste from landfill through partnerships with local recyclers and pig farms.

    Restocking: We participate in a government restocking program. To date, more than 20 million fingerlings have been released into the Murray-Darling river system.
