Huon Aquaculture was presented with the Primary Producer Award at the 8th National Seafood Industry Awards at a ceremony in Perth yesterday.
Huon Co-Founder and Executive Director Frances Bender said that it was a proud day for Huon to be recognised as the top aquaculture firm in Australia.
“It is an honour to be recognised by our peers and this award is a fantastic acknowledgment of our future of fish farming vision.”
“This award demonstrates that Huon and the Tasmanian industry are leading the nation in aquaculture.”
The award recognised the achievements of Huon’s Controlled Growth Strategy which has seen the development of world leading innovations and advances in farming practices across the company’s operations.
“The key to Huon’s success is that we are dedicated, informed farmers, which means we have a commitment to constant improvement and innovation,” said Mrs Bender.
“The dedication of all our employees both on and off the farm amazes me each and every day and it’s great to see them receive this recognition.”
