Fremantle Octopus to extend reach

AN innovative technique for octopus fishing that provides greater catch and cost efficiencies is a key part of agribusiness Fremantle Octopus’s planned expansion in Western Australia and interstate.

Last month, the company opened a sophisticated investor raising in the hopes of securing $4.95 million to bankroll the strategy, led by Cottesloe-based fund manager View Street Partners.

Fremantle Octopus was established in 2002 by brothers Ross and Craig Cammilleri, and has already grown significantly in the years since, now holding most of the licences in the Western Australian octopus fishery.
