Excess Waste

​Each day, we fillet fresh fish to order at our seafood processing facility. Once the filleting process is complete, we're left with a large amount of fish heads, guts and frames. While some of these are used by chefs to make fish stock we're still left with a large amount of fish waste.

The solution? We make our own fertiliser!

 We take all the excess right next door to Marine Solutions WA, a local processor of organic fertilisers, where it undergoes a conversion process to become organic fish emulsion - creating a new and useful product to be used in sustainable agriculture!

All Marine Solutions WA fertilizer blends are registered NASAA Certified Organic. Most of the fish emulsion processed from our waste product is used locally by environmentally conscious farmers in regional WA as part of their organic and sustainable farming practices. 

Environmentally Friendly Packaging

In 2020, we switched the majority of our local delivery packaging to recycled cardboard boxes.

Polystyrene boxes are still required for some customers, particularly in regional areas. We understand the effect polystyrene has on the environment and sought to find a solution to reduce our environmental impact. 

We now recycle any returned polystyrene eskies by removing all stickers and delivering them to a Claw Environmental recycling facility in Kewdale. Here the polystyrene is compressed and can then be recycled into goods such as “faux wood” architraves, decorative mouldings, coat-hangers and picture frames.

Reducing our Carbon Footprint

In December 2020, we took a another step towards reducing our carbon footprint by installing 144 solar panels on the roof of our fresh fish processing facility.

This has reduced our electricity usage by over 40%!

Sustainability & Our Suppliers

While making our own fertiliser is a great initiative, being a sustainability-friendly business requires a bit more dedication and thought into the suppliers we choose to deal with. 

Endeavour Foods have been supporting local sustainable producers for over 20 years. As passionate advocates for sustainable seafood, we're committed to championing not only the high-quality produce that comes from responsible fisheries, but also the very ocean ecosystems that sustain them. By endeavouring to prioritise sustainability in all aspects of our business, we're dedicated to making a positive impact on the health and vitality of our oceans.


How Do Primary Seafood Producers Commit To Sustainability?

There are many paths to sustainability that include:

  monitoring species populations to prevent overfishing
  reducing by-catch and maintaining stock levels
  reducing or eliminating impact on the marine environment
  effective management to ensure a healthy marine ecology for the future
  being audited and receiving certification by independent organisations such as the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), Friends of the Sea (FoS) or the Australian Conservation Foundation's (ACF) Sustainable Australian Seafood Assessment Program

Independent assessment looks at specific impacts to wild fish populations and the ecosystems they're part of. Supply chain quality can also be guaranteed so the customers knows exactly where their seafood comes from. 

Regular DNA testing of end products also ensure produce is labelled correctly so you can trust that what is named on the label or on a menu, it is what it says it is.
