Tassal Salmon


 

 

Tassal Salmon


 

 

As Australia’s largest aquaculture producer, Tassal is committed to lead the salmon farming industry by example. To this end, we are constantly developing programs of food safety, water management, salmon welfare and overall product quality and nutrition.

Your entire Omega-3. 
Just 100g of fresh Tasmanian Salmon provides 162%# of your recommended daily intake of Omega-3. That same 100g of Salmon also provides 42%* of our daily protein requirement.

As well, Salmon also has the essential nutriments: Vitamin D, Vitamin B6 & B12 and the minerals: Phosphorus, Magnesium, Potassium and Selenium. Tasmanian Salmon really is natures super food. 


The environmentally responsible protein. Salmon are cold blooded and live in water so they use far less energy. 

This means that Salmon farming has one of the lowest carbon footprints with much lower greenhouse gas emissions than land based protein production^.

Nearly all of what our salmon eats, turns into ‘salmon’. Salmon has one of the lowest Feed Conversion Rates (FCR) of all proteins.

The lower the FCR the more efficient the animal is in producing protein and energy from its feed and then converting it into a rich food for us. 

Salmon uses most of its energy for growth and the amount of feed required to produce a kilogram of salmon is almost an incredible one-to-one ratio.


Our partnerships in sustainability 

Through our partnership with WWF-Australia and our ASC certification, Tassal is a pioneer in responsible aquaculture in both Australia and the world.

WWF-Australia provides Tassal with expert advice on the development and implementation of our sustainability strategy and action plan.

By reviewing our operations and making recommendations for more responsible aquaculture, WWF provided guidance through the various stringent stages of the ASC certification process.

Tassal has signed WWF's Sustainable Seafood Charter. We are committed to a future in which sustainable aquaculture thrives in healthy ecosystems, benefiting people, businesses and local communities while safeguarding the long-term viability of the salmon supply we all depend on. 

What we've achieved with WWF

Eliminated use of copper anti‐foulant paints on nets and pens to remove the risk of harmful copper components leaching into the marine environment.

Dramatically reduced the amount of fish in the feed provided to Tassal fish leading to reduced impact on wild fish stocks.

What is the Aquaculture Stewardship Council?


What is the Aquaculture Stewardship Council?


ASC certification is the highest global standard for responsible fish farming. 

The ASC is an independent, not‐for‐profit organisation founded in 2010 by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and The Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH) in accordance with ISEAL principles (just like Fair Trade) of multi‐stakeholder input and a Board containing a cross-section of industry and not‐for‐profit members to manage global standards and the certification of responsible fish farming around the world. It works to promote best practice aquaculture globally, and aims for a world where everyone has access to responsibly sourced seafood. The ASC certification provides consumers with an assurance they are purchasing salmon from farms that manage their environment and social impact to the highest standards.

Tassal achieved its ASC certification in 2014. Tassal salmon are monitored and audited to ensure that they are reared in the best possible conditions. Tassal publicly reports all its information on its website which can also be viewed in Tassal’s ASC Dashboard: www.tassal.com.au/sustainability/asc-dashboard
