Yumbah Aquaculture earns a major sustainability milestone

Yumbah Aquaculture has secured internationally-recognised Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification for its four land-based abalone farms across Australia, a mark of the company’s longstanding commitment to sustainable farming.

The ASC’s primary function is to manage global standards for responsible aquaculture. To achieve certification Yumbah – which farms abalone onshore at Bicheno in Tasmania, South Australia’s Port Lincoln and Kangaroo Island, and Narrawong in Victoria’s west - had to subject each farm to a rigorous independent audit pursuant to the seven key principles established by ASC.

Successfully completing this audit certifies Yumbah’s strict adherence to practices that minimise environmental impacts, and compliance with the highest level of socially responsible practices when producing its sustainable abalone products.

Yumbah chief executive David Wood said ASC certification was an impressive milestone in Yumbah’s journey to being Australia’s leading shellfish aquaculture company.

“Aquaculture Stewardship Council is a global benchmark for sustainable farming practices and having all four farms officially certified is testament to the hard work of our people to attain this,” Mr Wood said.

“As we continue to invest in Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania, it’s important we match our growth ambition with a commitment to meet and exceed international environment and consumer standards.”

In July Yumbah announced the acquisition of Cameron of Tasmania, the State’s leading oyster producer, and subsequently announced expansion plans on Kangaroo Island.
