Public Notice – Decommissioning Marine Aquaculture Research Lease in Providence Bay

Production trials at the Marine Aquaculture Research Lease (MARL) in Providence Bay, New South Wales, ended on 30 June 2018, when the last remaining yellowtail kingfish were harvested from the site.

Following the initial trial, Huon removed all surface infrastructure for refurbishment ready for redeployment. However, with the decision in early 2019 to finalise the research trial, the surface infrastructure wasn’t reinstated at the MARL.

The below Decommissioning – Community Stakeholder Communication Plan has specifically been prepared for the decommissioning operations at the MARL for the removal of the remaining in-water infrastructure.
