fish farms

Tasmania's famous Atlantic salmon and Ocean Trouts are farmed here in these floating pens, where they grow to market size.

 

Commercial farming of Atlantic Salmon only began in Tasmania in the mid-1980s and is now worth more than $150 million a year.

 

Tasmania grows the only farmed salmon in the world that does not require treatment to remove impurities.
