On an annual basis we test our salmon and trout (across all our farming sites) for a range of heavy metals. Samples are sent to the National Measurement Institute for independent testing. Once again, the 2020 results provide evidence of ZERO heavy metal accumulation in any of our fish. Specifically, the results show:
- no detection of lead or inorganic arsenic in any sample;
- Mercury levels significantly below the MRL (maximum residue level);
- Both Arsenic and Chromium levels are low, noting there is no MRL for either metal in Australia.
Maximum Reside Limits are determined by Food Standards Australia and are set at levels that pose no risk to human health.
