Management of marine farming equipment

At Huon, maintaining the integrity of the marine environment and surrounding areas in which we farm is a major factor in the decision-making across the company, which includes a focus on ensuring marine farming equipment remains inside designated lease areas, and in serviceable condition.

We actively work to keep our waterways safe and clean, but we understand that sometimes due to circumstances beyond our control pieces of our equipment leave our sites and enter our waterways.
In the interests of full transparency, we share our equipment markings and the types of ropes and netting that we use in our operations. Our current listing (which is also provided to Government) is available here Huon’s Equipment Register >

If you find marine farming equipment (either on water or on land) you can report via the following mechanisms – mobile App (DebrisTracker), 24/7 hotline (1300 332 747) or if a potential navigational hazard, contact Marine and Safety Tasmania 0418 145 439. These reports are automatically forwarded to government authorities in addition to the relevant salmon company to arrange collection.
