Australian Prawn Fisheries

From humble beginnings of hauling the day’s catch in by hand, Australian fishers are pioneers in sustainable prawn harvesting.  We bring the finest quality prawns from the remote Gulf of Carpentaria, the World Heritage-Listed Shark Bay, tropical Queensland, the cold southern waters of Spencer Gulf and the stunning NSW coast to our discerning consumers.

Sustainability - planned and certified wild prawns

Our prawn fisheries are globally recognised as some of the best managed in the world, including by the Food and Agriculture Organisation – United Nations (FAO).  Industry works in partnership with fisheries managers and scientists to ensure sustainable fishing practices and to minimise impacts of fishing on the marine environment.

Planned & Certified Prawns

“It’s in all our interests to look after the marine environment.  Fishermen rely very heavily on a healthy functioning marine ecosystem.  We believe that a healthy ecosystem equals a healthy sustainable fishery.”
