Seeds for Snapper, Western Australia

OneFishTwoFish is supporting OzFish Unlimited to help return seagrass meadows to Cockburn Sound, Western Australia
Since 2018 OzFish has been leading the restoration of seagrass meadows in Cockburn Sound, Western Australia. It engages hundreds of recreational fishers and community members to take part in a massive effort to restore the lost seagrass meadows of Cockburn Sound. Without these habitats, fish populations will continue to decline. Over the past four years, more than three million seagrass fruits have been collected and over 2.1 million seeds have been redistributed into the restoration zones of Cockburn Sound. 2022 was their biggest success yet, with another two hectares of seagrass planted. To put this in perspective, that roughly equates...

Sydney's Operation Crayweed, New South Wales

OneFishTwoFish is supporting Operation Crayweed to help restore kelp reefs throughout the Sydney metropolitan region.
Operation Crayweed is restoring lost underwater forests in the Sydney region for the crayfish and abalone that reside there. These giant reef structures support hundreds of smaller invertebrates that are food for local fish populations. By restoring these forests, we are restoring equilibrium to the food chain.The goal of Operation Crayweed is to re-establish lost underwater forests of crayweed along the entire Sydney Metropolitan coastline. Crayweed (Phyllospora comosa) is a large seaweed that forms dense forests which dominate shallow rocky reefs along ~2000 km of the Great Southern Reef, from Port Macquarie (NSW) to Tasmania. Crayweed disappeared from 70 km...

Corner Inlet Circular Seafood Project, Victoria

OneFishTwoFish is helping the Corner Inlet Fishers Habitat Association become the first fishery in Australia to become Seafood Positive, by returning two baby fish for every flounder or flathead caught by fishers.
The Corner Inlet Fishers Habitat Association (CIFHA) has partnered with Seafood Positive to trial a new circular economy approach to sustainable seafood. In an Australian first, the project will support an assisted breeding program for Greenback flounder and Rock flathead, returning two juvenile fish for every fish caught by CIFHA commercial fishers over a two-year period. The project aims to replace fish destined for Melbourne’s top restaurants with baby fish bred in SeaGen Aquaculture’s Phillip Island fish hatchery.Adult fish are collected by the fishers before being handed over to the SeaGen hatchery for spawning to produce baby fish for release. Commercial...

SeaGrow: seagrass nurseries for fish habitat enhancement, Great Barrier Reef

OneFishTwoFish is supporting Central Queensland University to recover seagrass meadows on the Great Barrier Reef
Seagrass meadows in the Great Barrier Reef are valuable foraging, nursery and spawning habitat for a range of commercial and recreationally fished species. This project utilises community flower collections, a purpose-built seagrass nursery and partnerships between First Nations people and seagrass researchers to produce seeds for enhancing the persistence and resilience of seagrass meadows. Operating out of Gladstone, Queensland, Seagrow is on the frontline of ocean sustainability.   The Great Barrier Reef is a hive of marine activity, and many species of fish benefit from the protection and structure of seagrass meadows. Seagrow is focused specifically on five significant fish...
