Considered to be the best octopus in the world, Fremantle Octopus was founded in 2000 and specialises in octopus fishing and the manufacture of processed raw and value added octopus products for sale in both the Australian and Overseas markets. The species of octopus ( O'tetricus ) found off the Western Australian coast is considered to be one of the best species of octopus in the world due to the quality and colour of its flesh when processed, its tenderness and flesh structure, its high quality diet as well as its generous size.
The company has not only created a sustainable octopus fishing industry in Western Australia where none previously existed, it has also built a thriving manufacturing operation that has a world reputation for high quality seafood products. All this whilst maintaining a sustainable fishery policy.
"As the Managing Director for the largest fully integrated octopus fishing and processing company in Australia, our wholesalers and distributors are vital to our success. Fremantle Octopus Company have had a long standing relationship with Commtrade and I have been continually impressed with their creative approach and passion about unique Australian sustainable products like ours. They have an experienced staff that differentiates themselves by their understanding of our business and by providing high quality service to our end consumers. In a word, they can be "trusted". They stand behind their products 100% and they have always endeavoured to instil customer loyalty by doing what is right for us."
