In Australia, barramundi is both wild-caught and farmed for export to the global market as a
table fish, and some recreational fishermen enjoy the pursuit of barramundi as well. Barramundi has been
popularized for human consumption because it has been viewed as a sustainable fish, with strong stocks, a
healthy habitat, and careful stewardship all contributing to the longevity of barramundi as a species.
This fish is widespread and shows no signs of being at risk.
