Located on the Coorong lagoon, Lake Alexandrina and Lake Albert near Adelaide, and the adjacent coastal waters of the Southern Ocean, Lakes and Coorong is unusual. Based in a national park and protected wetland that contains three distinct ecosystems, it was the first community fishery in Australia to achieve MSC certification back in 2008.
The fishery targets a number of finfish species including yellow eyed mullet (Aldrichetta forsteri), golden perch (Macquaria ambigua) and mulloway (Argyrosomus hololepidotus). It also targets the small shellfish pipi. Although its original certification in 2008 covered both finfish and pipis as one Unit of Certification (UoC), these have now been separated for current and future assessments.
