The Future of Fish Farming

Our move to offshore farming will be a step-change for our industry that benefits the environment and all users of our shared waterways.

Between 2014 and 2015 we have completely changed the way we farm. We replaced every single mooring and pen on every lease, we changed the way we feed our fish and we changed the way our teams on the farm work together. We use our well-boat, the Ronja Huon (the first ship of her kind anywhere in the world), to bathe our fish in freshwater and keep them healthy. We closed down our shallowest inshore sites and moved our remaining sites into deeper, higher energy areas to reduce our impact on neighbours and improve navigation and safety. Our Fortress Pens are a world first that bring together three decades of farming knowledge and the newest technology available.

The Future of Fish Farming at Huon Aquaculture

We are proud salmon farmers and since we established Huon Aquaculture in 1986 our business has grown to become Australia’s signature producer of salmon. We’re recognised around the world for the quality of our salmon and the ingenuity for our operations.

We are an ethical business, a respected Tasmanian brand, part of a sustainable industry and a company that is focused on the safety of our employees, the welfare of our fish and the wildlife around our farms.

Right now, we are setting the standard for salmon farming in Tasmania. It is our view that our move to offshore farming will be a step-change for our industry that benefits the environment and all users of our shared waterways.
