The Tasmania-based company’s accreditation will enable consumers to purchase salmon that has been grown with a strong focus on animal welfare.

All fish grown in Tasmania’s south are RSPCA-approved however, salmon grown in Macquarie Harbour, Tasmania, are not currently part of the Approved Farming Scheme.

Huon Aquaculture’s executive director Frances Bender, said: “Fish welfare has always been essential to every aspect of what we do. That’s why, after a lot of extremely hard work by all of our people and as Australia’s first RSPCA Approved salmon farmer, we are proud to be leading the way in farming salmon safely, sustainably and with a strong focus on welfare.

“We’ve never wanted to be the biggest salmon farmers; we want to be the best. Being able to supply Australia’s only range of RSPCA Approved Salmon means that consumers that care and want the best for themselves and their families can now do that with confidence by choosing Huon.”
