Following a successful trial of farming Yellowtail Kingfish offshore in New South Wales (which was completed in mid 2019) we have been allocated a permit to establish commercial Yellowtail Kingfish farming off the Houtman Abrolhos Islands, Western Australia. The NSW trial demonstrated that not only do Kingfish grow exceptionally well in warm waters, but there is significant market demand for the fish.
What are we doing?
Two years ago, with the support of the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries, Huon began trialling farming Yellowtail Kingfish in Providence Bay, NSW. The first phase of the trial was a success, and demonstrated that it is possible to farm high-quality Kingfish in warm waters, and that there is significant market demand for the product.
The success of the first phase of the trial, along with gaining a lease site in Western Australia near the Houtman Abrolhos Islands, will see Huon adding a third fish species to its commercial farming operations.
