Tips for buying sustainable prawns

 In Sustainable seafood

Here are our top 5 clear tips on how to be sure you are purchasing sustainable prawns.

Tip 1 –  Avoid prawns from South East Asia, if you are unsure why, watch ‘What’s the Catch’ and I’m positive you will never eat imported prawns again!

Tip 2 – Look for Marine Stewardship Council MSC blue eco label. Ask the fishmonger if the prawns are certified from the MSC.

Tip 3 – Choose Northern Prawn Fishery NPF prawns, which include banana, tiger and endeavour. They’re found in the big retailers and fishmongers as NPF is the largest prawn fishery in Australia.

Tip 4 – Choose Australian.

Tip 5 – In restaurants choose Spencer Gulf King Prawns (MSC certified) or prawns from the NPF.
