Leeuwin Coast is proud to be on a journey focused on re-defining best practice in sustainable shellfish aquaculture. Maintaining this focus on a commercial scale means the marine environments we operate in continue to thrive and produce the best quality seafood.

No shortcuts

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.

Carbon Neutral

In 2020 our aquaculture products were the first in Australia to be certified Carbon Neutral by Climate Active - a rigorous Australian Government initiative. This means we have achieved net zero carbon emissions in the production of our shellfish.


Friend Of The Sea

Our shellfish have attained Friend of the Sea certification, a leading standard that recognizes sustainable aquaculture practices and promotes marine conservation.

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.
