Aquna Sustainable Murray Cod
Thinking outside the square, a collective of pioneering irrigators in the Riverina region established an aquaculture industry, from scratch, more than 550 kilometres from the nearest ocean. Now, Aquna Aquaculture is shaping the future of Australia’s native freshwater fish by producing premium, sustainably-farmed Murray cod.
With a commercial fishing ban on wild Murray cod, and an increasing appetite for the white-fleshed fish, Aquna Aquaculture developed a land-based aquaculture model. We grow high-quality Murray cod in open ponds on the Murray-Darling Basin river system – the fish’s native environment. These ideal conditions make our cod the best-tasting on the market.
Our name, Aquna Aquaculture, is derived from the word "Akuna" – an Australian aboriginal word meaning "the way forward" and "flowing water". We have replaced the ‘k’ with ‘q’, as it provides synergy with aquaculture and signifies our dedication to innovation.
Aquna Aquaculture trades as Murray Cod Australia Limited on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX code: MCA), listed on 31 January 2017.
Our vision is to make sustainably-farmed Murray cod the fine-dining fish of choice in Australasia and around the globe.
Our mission is to produce great-tasting Murray cod, fully traceable from pond to plate, in a way that’s respectful to the environment, our growers, and community.
