Southern Blue Fin Tuna are caught in the Great Australian Bight usually from December to March. Farming or Ranching only started as a result of a declining wild fishery and a response to concerns of sustainability.

In response to these concerns in 1984 Australia, Japan and New Zealand formed the Commission of Southern Bluefin Tuna (CCSBT) to limit and manage the total allowable catch (Australia’s total allowable catch is 5,265 tonnes).
Southern Bluefin Tuna return to the Great Australian Bight yearly to feed as part of their evolutionary lifestyle.
They gather to the surface on calm sunny days, this allows them to be seined and transferred to purpose built towing cages.
These fish are then towed back to the clear pristine waters of Port Lincoln to be conditioned for the Sashimi market.
