Hiramasa Kingfish

- the King of Yellowtail

Jarrad van Dijk - As Australia’s only commercial producer of Kingfish, Clean Seas has developed an outstanding international reputation for its highly sought after Hiramasa Yellowtail Kingfish.

Having successfully pioneered the propagation, husbandry, harvesting and marketing of Hiramasa Yellowtail Kingfish outside of Japan, Clean Seas continues to supply the popular species as a premium sashimi and white table fish based on quality, consistency, versatility and reliability.

Clean Seas continues to develop markets for its Hiramasa Yellowtail Kingfish across Australia, Asia, Europe and the US where demand is growing and consistently exceeds supply.

Clean Seas continues to enhance its operations through new research and world’s best practice techniques to deliver Kingfish of premium quality.

Significantly, the performance of the new season Kingfish fingerlings introduced in November 2012 is amongst the best that has ever been achieved by Clean Seas which bodes well for the quality of these fish as they mature to full commercial size in 2013.

Clean Seas is in the process of cementing its position as Australia’s leading commercial producer of Hiramasa Yellowtail Kingfish by expanding its successful propagation and harvesting program in South Australia.

The company is on track to increase production from 500 tonnes per annum in 2012/2013 to 1,500 tonnes per annum by 2015, with infrastructure already in place to support this expansion to meet rising global demand for Yellowtail Kingfish.
