Barramundi, The Sexy Green Seafood

  (UNITED STATES, 1/14/2010)

Move over salmon. See ya later tilapia. There’s a new fish in town that’s heating up skillets America. It was named a “Hot Culinary Trend for 2010”, The Daily Green and Fabien Cousteau call it ‘sexy’, and America’s Green Nutritionist™ Kate Geagan dubs it a “lean and green superfood”.

What is it? Barramundi. No, not barracuda - B-A-R-R-A-M-U-N-D-I. Get used to pronouncing it, because it’s quickly becoming America’s new favourite fish.
 
Popularized by Australis Aquaculture (Public, ASX:AAQ), the Massachusetts-based sustainable aquaculture pioneer that won the 2009 Seafood Champion Award; this sweet and mild fish is earning raves for its mouth-watering flavour, health benefits and eco-friendly pedigree.

Barramundi has been prized for generations in Australia for its mild, buttery flavour and succulent texture. And now it’s available in supermarkets and restaurants throughout the United States. Barramundi is similar to premium fish like red snapper, striped bass, and Dover sole, but without the high price tag.
 
Australis Barramundi passes health benchmarks swimmingly. Hormones, antibiotics, and additives are never used, and stringent testing eliminates the risk of contamination from mercury, PCB’s and other pollutants. With just 137 calories per 140 grams portion, 2.5 grams of non saturated fat and lots of lean protein, it’s great for a healthy diet. Unlike tilapia, Australis Barramundi provides an ideal balance of omega-6 to omega-3 levels.

Australis frozen barramundi is sustainably raised by family-owned farms or line caught from small boats in the pure waters of their natural habitat. Barramundi is ranked a ‘Best Choice’ by all of the major consumer seafood guides (Monterey Bay Aquarium, Blue Ocean Institute and Environmental Defense).

And unlike other carnivorous fish such as salmon or cod, barramundi thrive on a largely vegetarian diet because of their rare ability to synthesize omega-3 fatty acids from plants. Farmed salmon can require up to 2.25 kilos of small fish to produce each pound of product, resulting in a net loss of biomass, not a good practice for a planet with declining fisheries.
 
Australis’ proprietary farming systems and specialized feeds leverage barramundi’s biological abilities and result in a net gain of fish protein, thus producing a healthy product with a small environmental footprint. That’s one of many reasons why Australis Aquaculture was crowned a ‘2009 Seafood Champion’ for their ocean -friendly practices.
