Land-based sustainable fish farming

Australia has earned a worldwide reputation as a supplier of safe, high-quality seafood, produced using environmentally-sustainable practices in wild-catch fishing and aquaculture.*

At Murray Cod Australia (MCA), we produce the highest quality Murray cod using industry-leading, sustainable practices. Our growers are renowned for driving the development of innovative techniques, which are grounded in our environmentally-friendly philosophy.

Our land-based production model has a low eco-footprint because the same irrigation water can be used twice – once through our fish ponds, then for crop irrigation or pastures on farms. It means we’re effectively ‘borrowing’ water, which is ultimately used for irrigation.

Our Murray cod is grown in open ponds, in their native water, as opposed to a recirculating aquaculture system (RAS). Our purpose-built cage systems allow us to grow tastier fish.
