Australis Aquaculture
Address

Australis Aquaculture is an award-winning producer of premium ocean-raised barramundi in Central Vietnam, bringing innovative Climate-Smart Ocean Farming practices to the marine tropics. With a mission to produce the most delicious fish imaginable in the most responsible way possible, Australis has spearheaded the popularization of barramundi as a key culinary trend in North America and offers a full line of frozen products for leading foodservice companies and retailers.

The company's internal mantra is, "Everything we do today can be done better," and actively pursues this idea through four Better Fish, Better World initiatives: advancing sustainable seafood education, combatting climate change through aquaculture, promoting human health through seafood nutrition, and addressing ocean plastic. A leader in sustainability, Australis Barramundi is 4-Star BAP-certified and was the first ocean-farmed fish to earn the Best Choice rating from the Monterey Bay Aquarium SeafoodWatch® Program. 

Australis Barramundi, The Sustainable Seabass® is prized for its mild, buttery flavor, and succulent, firm texture. It has one of the highest levels of omega-3s of any common white fish, with half the calories of salmon. The edible skin crisps up beautifully and enhances any dish's craveability. Its moderate oil content prevents the fish from drying out, making it a versatile and easy-to-use ingredient that works exceptionally well in high volume commercial kitchens and also at home.

In 1982, Australis CEO Josh Goldman was living in a student-built solar greenhouse where he pioneered integrated production systems that were at the forefront of the emerging field of sustainable aquaculture. Armed with a passion for the environment and a head for science and technology, Josh spent 20 years testing over 50 different fish—searching the globe to find the 'Next Big Fish.' Using a specific set of criteria to evaluate each species’ ability to thrive in an aquaculture environment, he failed time and time again. Then, in 2000 Josh met Stewart Graham, an Australian entrepreneur who introduced him to barramundi. Finally, Josh met his match. This Southeast Asian fish met all of his criteria, as its natural habitat was almost exactly that of a fish farm.

Seafood ChampionStarting with Josh’s revolutionary indoor aquaculture system in Turners Falls, Massachusetts, Australis Aquaculture designed their facility from the ground up to address all of the major environmental challenges facing fish farming. Later they leveraged best practices in the design of the new hybrid land-based recirculating nursery and offshore marine farm in Vân Phong Bay, Vietnam, a truly ideal place to raise barramundi. Australis Barramundi are fed a well-balanced, sustainably-sourced diet containing natural probiotics that optimize fish health and minimize the need for antibiotics. Every fish is carefully nurtured, humanely harvested, hand filleted, and flash-frozen to preserve peak freshness and flavor. In 2009, Josh Goldman was a recipient of the Seafood Champion award for his pioneering work in aquaculture and seafood.

In 2018, Australis initiated an ambitious project to address climate change called Greener Grazing, which aims to initiate commercial cultivation of the red seaweed which has the unique ability to virtually eliminate methane emissions from ruminant animals when fed at a ~1% of diet.
