Based in the Riverina, New South Wales, we produce premium, pond-grown Australian Bass. Our pioneering people have crafted a luxurious farmed Bass by improving on nature. We have shaped a future for Australia’s native fish, which has an extraordinary history.
Our name, Aquna, is derived from the word “Akuna” – an Australian aboriginal word meaning “the way forward” and “flowing water”.We have used the letter ‘q’, as it provides synergy with aquaculture and represents our dedication to innovation.
We grow high-quality Bass in open ponds (or dams) on Australia’s Murray-Darling Basin river system – the fish’s native environment. We believe these ideal conditions make our Bass the best-tasting on the market.
With a commercial fishing ban on wild catch, and an increasing appetite for the iconic fish, Aquna has responded by developing a versatile ingredient that gives chefs new and flexible ways of including white-fleshed Bass on the menu.
By using a land-based aquaculture model, Aquna has one of the lowest environmental footprints in the industry.
Our vision is to make sustainably-farmed Australian Bass the fine-dining fish of choice in Australasia and around the globe.
Our mission is to produce great-tasting Bass, fully traceable from pond to plate, in a way that’s respectful to the environment, our growers, and community.
