Shellfish aquaculture is inherently sustainable - it doesn’t involve the addition of any feed or chemical treatments to the water. Oysters even sequester carbon into the shell as they grow, and we are constantly assessing our practices to further reduce our climate impact.
We are a member of the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO), a not-for-profit organization leading the development of a circular economy for packaging in Australia.
We design and review our packaging using ACPO’s sustainable packaging guidelines and have made a range of improvements to our packaging like removing cable ties and metal eyelets from our Rock Oyster bags. Click here to read more.
We track the health of the waterways surrounding our farms, checking a range of parameters and indicators to ensure our oysters are maintained in pristine environmental conditions.
In Oyster Harbour, we pay particular attention to monitoring the seagrass populations that are present around our infrastructure.
We look for ways to better understand and manage our interactions with marine ecosystems – partnering with research initiatives to generate baseline data about the local sea life.
