Huon Aquaculture Group Limited Annual Report 2017 | About Us | Locations

OPERATING IN LOCATIONS WHERE SALMON THRIVE

Huon is fortunate to farm in Tasmania’s unique environment, allowing the Company to raise salmon in locations in which they thrive. From the time Huon salmon start their life in hatcheries up until they are harvested their environment plays a vital role in their health, growth and quality.

Huon carefully manages lease sites to minimise the environmental impact

Benefits of deeper off-shore sites

Fish health and welfare:
Deeper, higher energy (wave and wind) sites mean that pens are located in areas with stronger currents and greater water movement. The result is more oxygen, which is much better for the fish and the environment.

Reduced environmental impact:
More environmentally appropriate locations.

Reduced visual and noise impact on the community:
Off-shore sites are less visible from the land and the sound of boats is less, as boat traffic has both decreased and is further away from shore.

Improved biosecurity:
By moving individual leases further away from one another and from other sites, we are future-proofing our farms and improving biosecurity.
