Sponsor Spotlight - Austral Fisheries
We’re so pleased to welcome back Austral Fisheries as one of our major event sponsors 2019. Austral is one of Australia’s largest integrated commercial fishing companies with interests in both deep-sea fishing and at sea prawning. Austral has been a sponsor since Port to Pub began and has the important role of presenting sponsor for the 25km ultra-marathon solo crossing. Austral supports us, and we love that Austral also loves the ocean, and takes good care of it too.
In addition to Austral Fisheries products being certified through the world’s highest sustainable rating – Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) - Austral was the first fishing company in the world to be granted Carbon Neutral certification. In its operations, Austral measures its carbon emissions, and offsets them by planting roughly 200,000 trees annually in Western Australia’s eastern wheatbelt. Austral hopes it can guide and inspire others to look after both land and water environments.
Austral specialises in deep-sea fishing for the Glacier 51 Toothfish found in Australia’s sub-Antarctic waters, wild-caught Skull Island & Karumba Prawns from the Gulf of Carpentaria and, more recently, an array of Snapper from the Timor Reef Fishery.
So, if you’re considering a seafood feast this Christmas, consider Austral Fisheries products, knowing that you’ll be getting the best quality seafood with the confidence you’re buying from a company committed to providing and maintaining a sustainable future. Contact www.australfisheries.com.au
