By purchasing our Atlantic Salmon and Ocean Trout you are:
Caring about animal welfare
Petuna produces Atlantic Salmon and Ocean Trout at a low pen density, so that they have room to move and are therefore healthy and stress-free. Even with the best care, fish may still become susceptible to disease. Ethically we must treat our fish as you would treat yourself or a family member if they were suffering from an illness.
Reducing food miles
68% of our fish feed ingredients are sourced from within Australia and the majority of Atlantic Salmon is sold within Australia.
Choosing a natural product – no genetic engineering
Our Australian feed companies maintain a GMO-free status. Since January 2000, in accordance with Australian regulation (Food Standards Australia New Zealand Code), Australia has maintained a ‘GMO DNA-free’ status of aquaculture feeds. Our vegetable raw materials are purchased as non-GMO and supplier certifications are documented.

Saying no to labour exploitation
Our employment policy bans forced or bonded labour and adheres to the existing International Labour Organization conventions and standards.
Supporting wild fish conservation
We choose feed suppliers that take responsibility for wild fish conservation by purchasing fishmeal and fish oil that is certified International Fishmeal and Fish Oil and Organisation Responsible Sourcing (IFFO RS) or Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).
