  • Petuna brand Tasmanian Ocean Trout is the most high-end farmed salmonid available on the US market and we are the exclusive importers of this product. This fish has a stunning appearance with a shape like a small torpedo, a relatively small head and a black-spotted silver hide, replete with pink racing stripe. Beneath this fine exterior Tasmanian Ocean Trout has bright crimson-cherry colored flesh, which fades to a pale peach, Omega-3 loaded belly portion (the most coveted cut for sashimi). This paler belly is full of inter-muscular fat and is so well-marbled it resembles an aquatic Wagyu at times.

    Our Ocean Trout is farmed in Tasmania, which is a small island to the south of Australia. This location has the perfect attributes to raise Ocean Trout to peak condition, including cold water which washes up from Antarctica, zero pollution, and a rich natural blend of tannins and saltwater. The location of Petuna’s sea pens is the Macquarie Harbor, which is surrounded by the Wild Rivers National Park. The surrounding weathered peaty soil enriches the waters of the bay with these tannins and they act as a natural antibacterial and antiviral so there is no chance of disease and no need for antibiotics or artificial inputs of any type for the fish.

    The entire life-cycle of Tasmanian Ocean Trout is controlled by Petuna, so quality and food-safety is exceptional, with full traceability and adherence to the highest standard of aquaculture practices. Every individual fish is grown, fed, harvested and processed under the strictest conditions and as a result the quality of this product is stellar.
