Respect for the ocean and its catch
Mori Seafood is a fishing business based in picturesque Port Lincoln, South Australia. We live by the sea and we work by the sea. Our mission is to share with the world the best seafood from the surrounding Southern Ocean. And to do this in a sustainable way that allows future generations to also enjoy this life by the sea. Hence, all of our processes embrace best practice – from point of capture to our customers’ hands.
A company built on innovation
The Moriarty family founded Southern Waters Marine Products (Mori Seafood) in 1989. At this time, our company’s focus was on lobster fishing, processing and exporting. We had the foresight and drive to radically change the industry by building the first live lobster holding tanks in Port Lincoln.
This allowed us to export live Southern Rock Lobsters to Asia and create new export markets for the industry as a whole. Today, we process and supply a range of seafood products, nationally and internationally, under our Mori Seafood and Mori Tuna brand.
Working together to produce the best seafood
We meticulously select our suppliers. Each of them aims to be the best in their field while sharing our vision and values. Together we work to ensure the integrity of our supply chain and quality of our products.
We listen to and work with our customers. Our ongoing product diversification is often due to customers’ requests for new products. One example of this is our innovative MORITUNA line. This vacuum packed Southern Bluefin Tuna enables high-end restaurants to deliver the best quality to their customers, as if the tuna had been caught only minutes before. It is now the flagship of our seafood products, complementing our core business of live lobster and tuna processing.
