Eyre Peninsula Seafoods Joins the Yumbah Family

We are pleased to announce the merger of Yumbah Aquaculture and Eyre Peninsula Seafoods.

The unwavering vision for both organisations has always been to consistently provide the highest quality shellfish to our customers and consumers. In joining together, Eyre Peninsula Seafoods and Yumbah Aquaculture now have access to Australia’s largest supply of world class mussels, ensuring an even greater ability to provide year-round exceptional quality product.

“Bringing EPS into Yumbah enhances our position as Australia’s leading shellfish aquaculture company.  The founders, Mark and Andrew, have had the foresight to develop not only the water space to grow the product, but also a major processing facility that supports quality mussels reaching consumers around the world. With this significant scale uplift to Yumbah’s existing mussel operations and our complementary abalone and oyster operations we believe we are well positioned to deliver our customers the finest shellfish from the pure waters of Australia all year round.”

– David Wood, CEO


Mark and Andrew of Eyre Peninsula Seafoods.

Collectively, Yumbah and EPS are now:

    • Australia’s largest mussel producer, with mussel operations in Victoria and South Australia growing more than 2,600 tonnes a year;

    • Australia’s largest abalone producer, with abalone production at four farms in Tasmania, Victoria and South Australia producing more than 750 tonnes a year;

    • Australia’s largest oyster spat producer, with production of more than 150 million oyster spat per year from South Australian and Tasmanian Hatcheries for farms in South Australia, New South Wales and Tasmania;

    • A significant farmed mature oyster supplier, producing about 450,000 dozen a year from two sites in Tasmania, with investment committed to grow to 650,000 dozen; and

    • A strong business with the farming, processing, feed production, sales, marketing, supply chain and finance teams to provide the ultimate experience for our customers and industry partners.

We look forward to the exciting journey and opportunities that this merger will bring not only to Yumbah Aquaculture and EPS, but to our valued industry friends, partners and customers.
