The Huon Story – Edition Nine

In this edition of The Huon Story our Lonnavale hatchery bares all. We discuss why the site is an important component of our Freshwater Improvement Programme.

This edition highlights how varied and diverse our operations are including the fact that our employees never stop striving to strengthen outcomes in every facet of our business.

We talk about processing improvements at our Parramatta Creek facility which wouldn’t be possible without the commitment and energy from our staff as well as our commitment to the aquaculture circular economy; the next steps in the Omega Treats journey.

We also focus on the Port Huon wharf— a critical component in the success of Huon over the past 35 years, with a note of appreciation to archivists who take care of important historical photos.

Equally important is our ongoing community engagement activities. From talking with students to meeting community groups keen to hear for themselves about what we do—our team has been doing some miles around the State.

Happy reading.
