Hannah Millward-Hopkins – Farm Attendant – ROV Pilot
Huon’s Hannah Millward-Hopkins has always been fascinated with how and why things work –
“I was a very inquisitive child (annoyingly so soz mum and dad) creating snail farms, growing rock crystals and generally making a mess around the house,” Hannah said.
Hannah went on to study Marine Biology at university, which combined, as she puts it, “her enthusiasm for science and love of messing about in rock pools!” She then went on to complete a Master’s in Marine Environmental Management and she also finished an Associate Degree in Aquaculture last year, which she started just before joining Huon.
“I first started with Huon on the ROV team (Remotely Operated Vehicle) working on the water undertaking things like net inspections and fish health checks. After 2 years in this role I moved into the feed control room where I now remotely feed and monitor our fish,” Hannah said.
“My background in marine science has help me in both roles as understanding fish biology, behaviour and the environmental conditions we farm in are critical for successful operations.”
