Petuna is a privately-owned Tasmanian success story, established by Peter and Una Rockliff in 1949. Originally a fishing company, Petuna diversified into aquaculture in 1990 and in 2010, Sealord invested in the business.
Petuna is a Tasmanian success story – a family company with a proud history that spans 70 years.
It began with a young couple, Peter and Una Rockliff, and one wooden fishing boat. Peter spent his time on the ocean, while Una sold the day’s catch initially from the boat and later from a small shop in Devonport.
When they first set up the business, they shared the mutual vision that Tasmania could win worldwide recognition for the quality and environmental excellence of its seafood industry.
Over the years, they have been central players in seeing that vision become reality.
