Clean Seas was formed by The Stehr Group in 2000 and was publicly listed in 2005.
Our company’s initial purpose was to propagate and grow Southern Bluefin Tuna, however its secondary endeavour with regionally indigenous Kingfish became highly prized in its own right. As a consequence, Clean Seas refocused its efforts on sustainable production of Hiramasa Kingfish.
