Moreton Bay Fresh
The Moreton Bay Fresh logo represents a code of best practice essential to the sustainability of the Moreton Bay fishery. This code of practice is used in setting the standard amongst commercial fisherman and includes environmental concerns such as by-catch reduction and habitat preservation as well best food practices which includes a focus on Bay to Plate as well as improved storage and handling techniques of the fresh produce through the supply chain.
The objective of the Moreton Bay Fresh project is to encourage awareness from producer to consumer on the environmental, nutritional and sustainable benefits of the local seafood.
Previous research by staff of DAFF, CSIRO, MBSIA and DPI have confirmed the integrity of the code giving the Moreton Bay fresh logo a unique position in the market place.
