Who We Are
We are Great Barrier Reef Tuna… and since 1988 we have been providing the freshest Tuna and all associated seafood products to North Queensland’s discerning seafood lovers

Great Barrier Reef Tuna have been, since inception owned, operated and managed by Bob and Annie Lamason with an emphasis on Tuna management and sustainability.

Great Barrier Reef Tuna has secured the services of their 2 sons, firstly Drew Lamason who takes on the role of Operations Manager ably assisted by Kyle Lamason who takes on the challenging role as Bob’s Fishing Fleet Manager.

“All five of the Lamason Children and families are involved with GBRT. Sarah serves in the shop when home from England, Joel works on the boats and in the factory when home from New Zealand, Rowan works behind the scenes in the business development and him and his wife, Kate are part of Little Tuna from the Albacore Tuna that comes off our boats. Kyle is our Fleet Manager and Cynthia his partner, works in-house and Drew is very hands on in the Factory and often seen with the Lamason grandchildren on the property. We’re a very family friends orientated business.”
It is acknowledged that the efforts made by this formidable team pioneered and established the now world recognised “AREA E” Tuna longline fishery.

With these highest levels of accomplishment, the team have been retailing and wholesaling their fresh locally caught Tunas and associated seafoods.

Their retail outlet in Cairns has long been recognised as Cairns’ premier seafood outlet providing the North’s freshest Sashimi Grade Tunas and a fine selection of locally caught game and reef fish virtually from the hook, so you can cook.

The quality of Bob’s Tuna has been much sought after and the wholesale division has been providing this high-end Tuna throughout other Cairns and North Queensland seafood retailers.

Great Barrier Reef Tuna has always been ready to handle all challenges. Their wholesale division can send the best Tuna to interstate wholesalers in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and many other locations, off the boat that morning and to its destination within 12 hours, airport to airport, thanks to Bob’s negotiated deal with Virgin Australia literally fresh Great Barrier Reef Tuna in Perth, same day - unbelievable.
