Giving our fish room to move

Huon has the lowest stocking density in the world.

By giving our salmon plenty of room to move they are able to behave naturally. Salmon have complex social structures and by keeping a population of fish together throughout their life, we allow them to build and maintain cohesive communities.

Low stocking densities also allow better oxygen flow through the pen and ensure the water quality is maintained giving the fish a clean, healthy environment that allows them to thrive.

When salmon are relaxed and allowed to behave normally in a clean, healthy environment, they feed better, they grow quicker and when it comes time to harvest our fish, the benefit is seen in the quality of our products.
