Listen to the full interview below:

If we can take a positive during this whole pandemic, it’s realising that we can get a whole lot more delivered to our door than we first thought.

Obviously it’s convenient, but in some cases, having items delivered straight to your door is helping a business that has had to pivot due to the pandemic.

MainStream Aquaculture is the world’s largest barramundi producer and they’re situated just half an hour from Melbourne’s CBD at a farm in Wyndham. The business—which produced more than 40 million fish last year—suddenly found themselves in a pickle with its restaurant and export market disappearing almost overnight due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can now get your hands on their Infinity Blue barramundi that you would usually find in restaurants all over Melbourne—and the rest of the world—and have it delivered straight to your door…

When a restaurant serves a fish whole, there is a reason it fits the plate perfectly. It’s because Boris Musa grew it that way.

His indoor fish farm in Australia supplies restaurants with plate-size barramundi grown to 1.8 pounds. The coronavirus put the restaurant industry on ice for months, but Mr. Musa’s fish kept growing. That led to a big fish problem—as in, his fish were getting too big…

In April 2020, we delivered 150,000 Barramundi Fry to Ace Eco Ark in Singapore. The below video gives you an idea of what a delivery of 150,000 fish looks like.

Infinity Blue was chosen to help fuel the Tennis players in the Player’s Lounge at this year’s Australian Open.  

Along with the implementation of a large tank with three golden Barramundi on display we also discussed the health components of Barramundi with National Performance Dietician for Tennis Australia, Joanna Shinewell who recommended barramundi to players at this year’s Australian Open because of its competitive edge. 

Joanna said although fish is a reliable source of omega 3 for athletes, the high concentration of polyunsaturated fats found in barramundi makes it ideal for recovery. 

“Proteins helps grow and repair muscles and omega 3 relieves muscle inflammation, which are both common problems for athletes during a tournament. 

“EPA helps fight inflammation while DHA is essential for brain development and cardiovascular health, which is exactly what you want when you’re recovering between matches. 

“Barramundi also contains high levels of selenium, an antioxidant which helps cleanse the body of nasty chemicals that build when you’re pushing your body to the edge,” Shinewell said. 

Among the 11 types of omega 3s, eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) are considered essential by health experts because they cannot be produced by the human body.
