About Glacier 51

Glacier 51 Toothfish, also known as Patagonian Toothfish. Isolated deep in the sub-Antarctic, a staggering 4,109 km from mainland Australia lies one of the most inhospitable islands in the world – Heard Island.

On the southern tip of this spectacular geographical feature, the breathtaking Glacier 51 (Fiftyone Glacier) pours into the surrounding treacherous icy waters creating the ideal environment for the highly prized toothfish found patrolling the underwater volcanic crevices 2,000 metres below sea level.

Gale force winds, horizontal snow, ten metre swell and as little as four hours of light per day display the raw power of mother nature surrounding this incredible Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable fishery.

The ultimate choice in sustainability, Glacier 51 Toothfish is certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and is recommended by the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program in the USA.  It is now also completely carbon neutral, with Austral Fisheries being certified under the Australian Government Carbon Neutral Program.

Australia’s Heard Island Glacier 51 Toothfish fishery undergoes rigorous annual stock assessments in collaboration with the Australia Antarctic Division to ensure accurate ongoing monitoring of the stock. Vessels are required to conduct research cruises and tag and release thousands of Toothfish to improve our information on the biology and status of this incredible fish.

By regulating the fishery and continuing the extensive research programs on Toothfish, the Australian government and CCAMLRhave ensured that fishing for Toothfish at Heard Island is sustainable.
