Aquaculture Hub showcased to Council

30 March 2015

West Coast Councillors, along with several Council staff, recently enjoyed a tour of the Tassal Fish Farm sites on Macquarie Harbour.

Organised through the Tasmanian Salmonid Growers Association (incorporating Tassal Operations, Huon Aquaculture Group and Petuna Aquaculture) the tour also included an overview of the new aquaculture hub area, wharf, buildings and infrastructure at Smiths Cove.

The Aqua Hub is the result of the expansion of the aquaculture industry infrastructure in Macquarie Harbour. 

“It was interesting to see the storage area and processes undertaken to farm, store and harvest the fish,” West Coast Councillor Lindsay Newman said. 

“The tour was very informative and a great opportunity to gauge the scope and progress of the development as this project has great economic growth potential for the West Coast.”

Undertaken by a representative from Tasmanian Salmonid Growers Association Limited and a Tassal Representative, The Aqua Hub tour continues Councils efforts to actively engage with West Coast industry as it works to build its role in economic development across the region.
