Our story

As a proud Gunditjmara man and owner of Black Fish, I share my mobs story.  Gunditjmara people are eel fishers and eel farmers – a tradition passed down from their Elders and enshrined across their wetland landscapes in the form of ancient and elaborate stone-walled fish trapping and aquaculture facilities – Budj Bim. This fishery is part of oral history with many families having many stories of fishing from the region's waterways. The fishery fed families and provided an income. Grandfathers always had a bag of eels to sell at pubs in the district. As in the past, today's fishery includes other fish such as Toupon, Blackfish and Mountain Trout.  Fish are caught in wire mesh traps, either box traps or funnel-shaped traps, and fyke nets similar in form to traditional woven basket traps. As in the past, fishing involves detailed knowledge of the seasonal cycle of water flows and fish activities and movements.

 

2019 Budj Bim Cultural Landscape in southwest Victoria was accepted onto the World Heritage List

 

Nothing brings a community together like a feed.  With the long history my mob has within fisheries, it was a fitting match to offer quality seafood through our Black Fish range.
