As a major employer in rural Tasmania, Huon Aquaculture actively engages with education providers from primary schools through to Universities to educate and attract the next generation of salmon farmers.

Our engagement includes hosting student work placements, facilitating site tours, working with the Beacon Foundation and UTAS Children’s University, collaborating with providers to shape curriculum, mentoring primary students (literacy and numeracy support) and secondary students (connection with Huonville HS to support young women) and providing guidance to VET and tertiary Aquaculture students about what hard and soft skills prospective employers find desirable.

We encourage anyone interested in pursuing a student work placement to learn more via the link  here.
