BAP Spotlight Story: Humpty Doo Barramundi

The Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) Program’s “Spotlight Stories” highlight BAP-certified facilities around the world and the stories of the people behind them. This Spotlight Story features Humpty Doo Barramundi, a family-owned barramundi business in Australia.

What inspired you to become involved in the seafood industry?

The family behind Humpty Doo Barramundi was inspired to join the seafood industry because we are passionate about fish — catching fish, eating fish and now farming fish! While we now spend more time growing fish than catching it, we still enjoy eating our saltwater barramundi.

Bob and Dan Richards, the father-son duo actively involved in managing Humpty Doo Barramundi, have backgrounds in environmental sustainability through education and previous employment, and it was natural to incorporate environmental sustainability into the farm’s practices as it grew.
