The Huon Story – Edition 9

In this edition of The Huon Story, we celebrate the hard work of our employees, highlight the history of some of our lesser-known sites like Port Huon wharf and Lonnavale Hatchery, and demonstrate our commitment to correcting misinformation about our operations.

We also dive into some great projects and good news stories that are happening around the business including:

  • IVF for salmon
    In what some have likened to IVF for fish, we’re delving into the world of using cryopreservation to store salmon sperm (milt) for future use.
  • Behind the Glass
    Huon’s Head of Retail explores Huon’s new product lines behind deli glass in major retailers.
  • Omega Treats
    Utilising by-products from Huon’s hatcheries and Tasmanian processing facility, Huon’s pet treats continue to go from strength-to-strength.
  • Efficiencies in Processing
    Six months on from appointing a General Manager of Processing, and efficiencies are already being seen across Parramatta Creek.
