Salmon are a temperate species. They evolved in the cool, high latitude waters of the North Atlantic, an environment which provides well defined seasons that drive the natural life rhythm of the salmon.
Although far from the Atlantic Ocean – unspoilt and remote – the pristine waters of the Huon River, Hideaway Bay and the Southern Ocean in Tasmania Australia have proven to be the ideal location to raise healthy, flavoursome Atlantic salmon.
With water fed by tributaries that start in World Heritage Wilderness Areas, air that’s refreshed by the famous Roaring Forties and fertile soil that spawned flourishing apple orchards, Atlantic salmon thrive in the unspoilt environs of Tasmania.
Tasmania is also free from a number of parasites and diseases that have effected some salmon colonies around the world.
