More than just an overused word and under adhered practice:
It is farmed or wild seafood harvested without harm to its population or habitat or to any other species in its ecosystem.
Our approach is to consider all of the aspects of the fishery when making purchasing decisions and we proudly support Australian fisheries knowing that they operate under acts of law, which prohibit un-sustainable practices
Our sashimi grade fish are ike jime brain spiked, the most humane method of euthanizing the fish and retaining the upmost culinary integrity and are graded by a team trained to the highest Japanese standards to select the highest quality available.
Mt Cook Alpine Salmon
At 600m above sea level, Mt. Cook Alpine Salmon is the world’s highest salmon farm, as the Chinook (or King) species of salmon demands pristine conditions to survive exclusively in fresh water, the farm is testimony to the environment and conditions.
The salmon are harvested using traditional Iki Jimi techniques, killing the fish quickly and humanely.
Mt Cook “Saikou” Alpine Salmon has the lowest intramuscular fat of any Salmon on the market and twice the amount of Omega3 fatty acids. The fish has a sweet, subtle flavour with a firm, muscular texture.
Our Albacore MSC Certified Tuna from Walkers Seafood is the best in class of the east coast tuna fleet. Wild harvested by hook and line to the sustainable standards set by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) and Australian Conservation Act. All fish are landed live on the line and ike jime brain spiked, the most humane method of euthanizing the fish and retaining the upmost culinary integrity.
Many of our fisheries are benchmarked against international, third party certification bodies, including the following:
Marine Stewardship Council, Friend of the Sea, Global GAP Best Aquaculture Practice programme.
We also refer to the following Government and Non Government organisations as guide to current trends and practices:
Fisheries Research and Development Corporation, Australian Fisheries Management Authority, Seafood Services Australia, Australian Marine Conservation Society, Cleanfish Alliance.
