The Aussie seafood made readily available to all Australians is a joint effort from 41,000 people that work hard to supply the best quality seafood all year-round.

Seafood Industry Australia (SIA), the national peak-body representing Australia’s commercial fishing industry, is encouraging all Australians to celebrate World Fisheries Day, every day.

“We really are the lucky country when it comes to seafood, and we have a lot to be proud of,” SIA CEO Jane Lovell said.

“To celebrate, why not tuck into some great Aussie seafood brought to you by the 41,000 people in this country who work hard to supply the best quality seafood all year-round.

“We should also celebrate the fact the Australian seafood industry continues to be a world leader when it comes to sustainability and innovation.

“For the sixth consecutive year, the Australian Bureau of Agricultural has given our solely Commonwealth-managed fisheries a positive report card.

“This is unprecedented internationally and highlights the quality of Australia’s Commonwealth fisheries management and commitment to providing Australians with sustainable seafood.

“An example of home-grown innovation is the world-first prawn traceability program which verifies provenance to a forensic standard, protecting the integrity and origin of Australian prawns.

“In another milestone, SIA recently launched “Our Pledge”. This is our commitment to the community, and to each other, that we will do the right thing to ensure a vibrant future for the Australian seafood industry.

The Australian seafood industry is committed to putting great local seafood on our tables all-year round.

“World Fisheries Day gives us the opportunity not only to celebrate these milestones, but to highlight the importance of healthy oceans and environments.

“Actively caring for our ocean and environment is a key part of “Our Pledge”.

“Australians love their premium quality seafood, and the Australian seafood industry is committed to putting great local seafood on tables locally and across the world for generations to come.”
