Eat more fish! The benefits of Australian-grown barramundi
Australians should eat more fish. According to the Australia's leading health research body, the National Health and Medical Research Council, fish is nutritious, providing energy (kilojoules), protein, selenium, zinc, iodine and vitamins A and D. Fish is also an excellent source of readily available long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, which are well known for their health benefits and are essential for life.
Barramundi was listed in Australia's Top 10 Seafoods in 2013 compiled by the Fisheries Research and Development Council (FRDC). The FRDC said Australian-grown barramundi could be enjoyed "guilt-free" because Australian aquaculture "is a sustainable activity with proper management and processes in place". In addition, Australian farmed barramundi is a good source of omega-3 acids (anti-inflammatory), phosphorous (protects the blood's acid balance and transports energy) and selenium (an anti-oxidant, for thyroid health and immune system).

When you buy Australian-grown barramundi, you are providing Australians with employment and essential skills, while supporting some of the strictest environmental legislations around sustainable farming in the world. These regulations have been created in conjunction with, and supported by, farmers who love where they live, love what they do, and are doing their best to pass on a sustainable industry to the next generation.
