From small beginnings Every big business starts as a small one—Huon Aquaculture started out in 1986 in Dover’s picturesque Hideaway Bay as the Bender family business. In November 2021, after 35 years of growing a company to be proud of, the Benders sold Huon Aquaculture to JBS Foods. Today it is fully vertically-integrated, employs around 800 people across Australia and farms fish in three marine sites in Tasmania.
