Suppliers & Sustainable Fishing

Little Tuna is proud to supply customers with sustainably caught Australian tuna.

Little Tuna’s primary fish supplier is local Cairns family business Great Barrier Reef Tuna (GBRT). GBRT has operated out of Cairns for over 25 years and currently runs a fleet of 3 vessels fishing in the Eastern Tuna and Billfish Fishery. The Eastern Tuna and Billfish Fishery is governed by AFMA.

To ensure sustainability of the fishery, AFMA have enforced strict guidelines for gear used, number of vessels and monitoring tools. A quota system is also in place limiting the total allowable commercial catch. Using these methods, there will not be any decline in the species survival over time.

More details on sustainable fishing practices used by Little Tuna’s suppliers can be found on the AFMA website under Eastern Tuna and Billfish Fishery.
