Sustainability is crucial to the success of Yumbah’s produce and is front and centre of everything Yumbah does. In the last 50 years, overfishing, habitat degradation and pollution has seen wild abalone fisheries across the globe progressively decline.
Yumbah has worked hard to close its breeding cycle, which means 100 per cent of its abalone are bred from Yumbah pedigree broodstock. Yumbah abalone farms are pump ashore, meaning all discharge water can easily be monitored and waste quality and its impacts are tightly regulated and controlled.
Yumbah adheres to strict license conditions from government agencies and collects regular water quality and environmental monitoring data. A recent survey of receiving waters at Yumbah Narrawong revealed no evidence of any environmental impact after sixteen years of operation.
