Offshore farming in Storm Bay

Over the years, Huon Aquaculture has conducted a significant amount of research to become pioneers in offshore farming in Tasmania. This research has informed our operations in Storm Bay, one of the roughest aquaculture farming areas in the world. We have been successfully farming in Storm Bay since 2014, and at present, Huon is the only company in Tasmania farming salmon offshore.
