Our commitment to sustainability

Port Lincoln’s Southern Bluefin Tuna industry doesn’t just follow global guidelines on tuna stock sustainability and production – it created what is now widely recognised as worlds-best practice.

So at a time when many fish stocks are dwindling in other markets, the Southern Bluefin Tuna Industry is in a healthy state. And none more so than those captured and matured in Port Lincoln’s pristine environment, which is closely governed by a strict internationally agreed quota system to ensure the future of the industry.

And KIN continues to work hard on ensuring the sustainable future of the Southern Bluefin Tuna industry including:

Friend of the Sea Certification —
KIN’s environmental stewardship has been certified by Friend of the Sea; a project of the World Sustainability Organisation and the only sustainable fisher’s certification programme recognised, and supervised by a national accreditation body.


SARDI, CSIRO & FRDC Affiliations —
KIN works closely with SARDI, leading scientists from the CSIRO, plus the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC); a partnership between the Australian Government and the fishing and aquaculture industries.


MSC Certification —
The Southern Bluefin Tuna Industry and Port Lincoln fisheries are also working towards Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification, taking decades of knowledge and ongoing innovation to ensure the future of the Southern Bluefin Tuna and its community.

And a commitment to innovation means KIN will constantly explore new ways of thinking about sustainability, for the future of its industry and community.
