Peter and Una Rockliff together with their families have spent many decades perfecting their artisan tasting products.
Peter was born to fish, and in 1949 the first commercial fishing boat he established was called the ‘Alva’, after his mother. Peter travelled eastward along the coast of Tasmania looking for fish where he met Una Barnett, who was from a well-known fishing family in Bridport.
Peter & Una married soon after and joined their first names together to name one of their boats ‘Petuna’. Peter and Una continued to build upon their fishing interests and the next big milestone was the construction of Tasmania’s first deep sea fishing boat, the Petuna Endeavour in 1979. By 1990 the Rockliff’s had further broadened their fishing interests and expanded into Aquaculture.
Peter and Una’s work pioneering Petuna Ocean Trout and Petuna Atlantic Salmon in aquaculture has been recognised with an Order of Australia Medal.
