HOW WE CARE
Tassal is Australian for Seafood
Our home is Tasmania, a beautiful island with a rich maritime history where our ambition to produce healthy, fresh Atlantic salmon began more than 35 years ago. From humble beginnings, we are Australia’s largest producer of Tasmanian grown Atlantic salmon. We have proudly introduced Tiger Prawns and Ocean grown Barramundi to our operations.
Our ambition is to produce delicious, healthy, locally sourced seafood, with a focus on quality, to provide for a growing population.
As responsible seafood producers, we care about the welfare and quality of our fish and prawns, the environment in which we operate, the local communities and our passionate people.

ASSOCIATIONS AND CERTIFICATIONS
We are members of organisations and associations, such as the Global Salmon Initiative (GSI), Seafood Industry Australia (SIA), Salmon Tasmania, Australian Prawn Farmers Association (APFA) and Australian Barramundi Farmers Association (ABFA).
We hold third party certifications across our operations. These certifications are achieved by implementing the relevant standard before being audited and assessed against the criteria in the standard.
The certifications we hold are either Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), Global GAP or Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP).
How we care about our people and communities
It is important to keep our people connected and embracing the same set of business values, from our operation in Dover, far south of Tasmania to Cone Bay, Western Australia and to Mission Beach in tropical North Queensland.
Tassal has a long history of supporting local communities in Tasmania, and many of our operations are in remote or regional areas, where our people both live and work. We have extended our community engagement and support commitments to include our Prawns and Barramundi communities.
