All around Australia, prawn fishers and the people they work with, talk about what makes the Australian wild prawn industry great. As a nation we love the ocean and beaches. We’re all connected to the sea.
Partners in Sustainability.
Prawns are only abundant when the rest of the ecosystem thrives, that’s why you’ll see fishers working closely with scientists, regulators and the community to ensure we all have Australian wild prawns for today and tomorrow.
Prawn fishers innovate to reduce bycatch.
We only want to harvest Australian wild prawns and leave other sea creatures undisturbed. Turtle exclusion devices have been effective for well over a decade and the next goal, reducing by-catch of smaller fish by at least 30% was ambitious. But clever engineering and sharing ideas has acheived eye-opening results.
Provenance, Trust and Transparency.
We want you to know where your prawns are from, how we harvest them sustainably and what we do to make sure there’s plenty for the future. Every wild Australian prawn has a story. Now that story can be traced back to the waters the prawn calls home.
Our people. Our values.
Prawns, people, community. Wild prawn fishing communities can be small and remote or large and sophisticated, but there’s one thing they all have in common. They care for each other and want to give back.
