THE FISHERY -  Tasmania’s largest multi-species seafood supplier, operating from the pristine Southern Ocean and in one of the world’s finest coastal environments. The fish thrive in the layered waters of the harbour. Nutrient-rich tannin-stained fresh water flows from the mountains of Tasmania’s world heritage-listed Wild Rivers National Park to overlay the cool, unsullied seawater that surges in from the furious Southern Ocean. This creates a perfect growing environment.

Tasmanian Atlantic Salmon will behave similar to higher end wild Salmons in the marketplace, with color, flavor, and silkiness.
