  • Recreational and commercial fishing/aquaculture worth about $1.6 Billion annually
  • 95% of Western Australia’s fisheries assessed as sustainable
  • WA is a world-leader in sustainability certification

A mural by talented Perth artist Brenton See is taking shape at Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour to mark Sustainable Seafood Day.

Mr. See’s special mural on Mews Road also highlights Western Australia’s commitment to world-class fisheries management and the sharing of aquatic resources.

“As we mark Sustainable Seafood Day, West Australians should be proud of the way the management of our State’s aquatic resources is regarded internationally.” Minister for Fisheries Dave Kelly said.

Western Australia is a world-leader in sustainability certification with six fisheries having already achieved certification through the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), and more undergoing the rigorous assessment process to meet the internationally recognised sustainability standards.

“Western Australia’s Western Rock Lobster Fishery was the very first in the world to be certified through the international Marine Stewardship Council and has held its certification for more than 17 years.” Mr. Kelly said.
