Half way between Sydney and Perth is the Eyre Peninsula – at the bottom of this barren expanse of wheat farming and wilderness lies Boston Bay. 3.5 times the size of Sydney Harbour, Boston Bay is where the desert meets the sea, an area of spectacular rugged seas and coastal savannah.
At the heart of Boston Bay lies Port Lincoln, home to Australia’s largest commercial tuna fishing fleet and hub of both the wild harvest and aquaculture fisheries in South Australia. The attraction for fishermen and aquaculture companies to this remote part of the world are the cold, nutrient rich waters of the Great Southern Ocean. Fed by the upwellings from Antarctica and carried up to the Australian mainland by the legendary “roaring Forties” of the Southern Seas, the waters of Boston Bay have long held a world wide reputation for the quality of the Tuna, Prawns, Abalone, Crayfish and Whiting.
Of recent times, a number of aquaculture seafood’s have been added to this list – Oysters, Abalone and now Black Mussels.
