Barramundi, Australis

Barramundi is a type of seabass that’s native to Australia and the Indo-Pacific. Barramundi is Aboriginal for “largescaled silver fish” and is internationally renowned for its deliciousness and versatility. Australis Aquaculture is a recognized leader of premium barramundi production and marketing. The Massachusetts-based company operates its vertically-integrated barramundi farm and processing facilities in Central Vietnam, pioneering an innovative on-land recirculation nursery to ocean grow out system in Vân Phong Bay, Vietnam, and employs humane Ikejime-style harvest and flash-freezing techniques to achieve exceptionally clean flavor, firm texture, and nutritional value. The company's vertically-integrated operations ensure top quality control, consistency, and traceability of every fillet and portion. Products are expertly trimmed, deboned, individually vacuum-packaged, and flash-frozen within hours of harvest. Australis Barramundi's moderate fat content makes it easy to work with and virtually impossible to overcook. This brand of barramundi also uniquely boasts heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids—comparable to wild Coho salmon—and an optimal 1:1 omega-6 to 3 ratio. Australis Barramundi is 4-Star BAP Certified, Best Choice rated by Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program, and is Ocean Wise approved.
