Wild Australian barramundi is a favourite on dinner tables across the country, but it may not be on the menu for long.

Minister for Northern Australia Matt Canavan has used the Northern Australia Infrastructure Fund to tip $28.7 million into the Humpty Doo barramundi fish farm near Darwin.

Commercial barramundi fishermen say their industry has all but collapsed as a result.

Northern Territory Seafood Council CEO Katherine Winchester says it’s not just fish farms threatening the industry. She tells Alan 70% of Australia’s fish are imported from overseas.

“That’s a figure that a lot of people aren’t aware of.

“Most Australians are assuming because it’s labelled as barramundi that it is Australian.

“Barramundi is a very well known Australian term. Unfortunately, the imported barramundi coming into Australia is using that name and that familiarity to make consumers think they’re getting the genuine thing.”
