We have the toughest fish sustainability regulations when compared to anywhere else in the world
At Great Barrier Reef Tuna, we fully endorse these stringent regulations and proudly meet and even exceed these requirements, so we can all enjoy our world-famous North Queensland caught seafood

At Great Barrier Reef Tuna, we are fully approved and managed by the (AFMA) Australian Fish Management Authority who are the only approved and regulating authority for seafood management.

Our Long Line Fishing practices are carefully monitored ensuring sustainability is maintained.

Our three state of the art Tuna long boats and our commercial reef fishing boat have video monitoring to record the on-board fishing activity. These video files are submitted to the AFMA monthly ensuring that our best practices truly do promote the quotas set and their respective sustainability.

Further to our commitment to long term sustainability with AFMA, we are also (AQIS) Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service AQIS Approved Export Facility.

The objective of AQIS's management of seafood import and export certification addresses the systems, procedures, processes and resources used to register premises and license exporters, monitor compliance with arrangements and manage non-compliance.
AQIS’ focus is on the regulatory activities assuring that Australian seafoods meet food safety and quarantine requirements.

Great Barrier Reef Tuna meet and exceed all these regulatory requirements
To ensure our seafood operations promote sustainability we also are recognised by Australia’s very own Tuna Australia

This progressive operation was formed to represent the statutory fishing rights of owners, holders, fish processors and sellers, and associate members of the tuna fishing industry in Australia. The goal of Tuna Australia is to plan, invest and manage to improve representation of the fishery.

Value adding even more to this impressive list of retail seafoods we will accept wholesale orders either within the tropical north or interstate to any capital city location.

The objectives are, but not limited to:
  • To ensure ecological sustainable development of the industry
  • To improve resource access and property rights
  • To extend and market industry practices to stakeholders and seafood consumers
  • To enhance market opportunity
  • To improve safety and workforce development
  • Advance, promote and represent the industry’s views
