The Sustainable Choice

The ultimate choice in sustainability, Glacier 51 Toothfish is certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and is also rated Best Choice by the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program in the USA.  It is now also completely carbon neutral, with Austral Fisheries being certified under the Australian Government Carbon Neutral Program.

Australia’s Heard Island Glacier 51 Toothfish fishery undergoes rigorous annual stock assessments in collaboration with the Australia Antarctic Division to ensure accurate ongoing monitoring of the stock. Vessels are required to conduct research cruises and tag and release thousands of Toothfish to improve our information on the biology and status of this incredible fish.

By regulating the fishery and continuing the extensive research programs on Toothfish, the Australian government and CCAMLR have ensured that fishing for Toothfish at Heard Island is sustainable.
