A history of Smart Aquaculture™...

Australis was founded by an entrepreneur from Western Australia who had the exciting idea of introducing Barramundi to the American market. Australian barramundi juveniles were initially exported to the US where they were grown to market in a sophisticated recirculation system located north of New York City. Australis' fish are marketed using traditional aboriginal artwork and stories to convey an authentic Australian culinary experience. After generating success in the some of America's finest restaurants, Australis decided to expand into the retail. To do so, they needed to drastically expand production. Following a three year search, they found their way to the pristine waters of central Vietnam. The Clean Harvest® farm is located 10 km off-shore, nestled amongst a cluster of small, largely uninhabited, islands. The translucent blue ocean waters provide perfect conditions for raising the some of the world's highest quality barramundi. If you haven't tried Clean Harvest® Barramundi, you're in for a treat!

In 1982, Josh Goldman was living in a student-built solar greenhouse and pioneered integrated production systems that were at the forefront of the emerging field of sustainable aquaculture. Armed with a passion for the environment and a head for science and technology, Josh spent 20 years testing over 50 different species. He searched the globe to find the 'Next Big Fish' that would deliver great flavor and culinary versatility with real health and sustainability benefits. Josh used a specific set of criteria to evaluate each species’ ability to thrive in an aquaculture environment.  Time and again each species failed to meet his criteria. Then, in 2000 Josh met Stewart Graham, an Australian entrepreneur who introduced him to barramundi. Finally, Josh met his match. This Southeast Asian fish met all of his criteria; in fact, its natural habitat is almost exactly that of a fish farm.
