Austral Fisheries joins the swim

SUPPORTING THOSE WHO SUPPORT THE SWIM...

We are so pleased to have Austral Fisheries as a Presenting Partner to the Port to Pub swim. – not merely because the company is responsible for some of the quality seafood available in Perth, but also because they catch and source it sustainably.

Austral Fisheries is one of Australia's largest integrated commercial fishing companies with interests in both deep sea fishing and at sea prawning. The company's responsible fishing practices and continuing efforts to maintain environmentally friendly and sustainable methods are well recognised and all its fisheries are sustainably certified by the Marine Stewardship Council - the world's highest sustainable rating.

Austral Fisheries is one of Australia’s largest integrated commercial fishing companies with interests in both deep sea fishing and at sea prawning. Its prawning component involves the operation of a fleet of 10 prawn trawlers in the Northern Prawn Fishery off the coast of northern Australia catching Banana, Tiger and Endeavour Prawns.

The fishery was established in the late 1960s and is Australia’s most valuable fishery managed by the Australian Commonwealth Government.

The Skull Island Tiger prawn is another Austral Fisheries branded products that has recently been introduced onto Australian menus. To find out more about the specially caught Skull Island Prawn visithttp://www.skullisland.com.au/

Austral Fisheries’ deep sea fishing activities involve the operation of 3 longline vessels plus a 4th dual purpose longline-trawl vessel.  All of which are equipped to survive the world’s harshest weather conditions as experienced in Australia’s sub-Antarctic zones.  These vessels specialise in catching Patagonian Toothfish and Mackerel Icefish. Austral Fisheries has branded the Patagonian Toothfish as Glacier 51 and can be found at some of Australia’s most famous restaurants.

Port to Pub welcomes Austral Fisheries as a Presenting Partner and we're sure everyone will support those who are helping make this historic swim iconic.
