Daintree Saltwater Barramundi
The farm is based on a 49 hectare property, with 3.3 hectares of licensed production ponds. The 14 earthen ponds are filled with the best salt water, sourced from the Daintree River, and are intensively stocked to ensure a consistent supply of first class Barramundi.
Fingerlings are carefully selected from local hatcheries, to ensure only the highest quality stocks are on-grown. Starting at around 100 millimetres, the fish are grown to commercial size over 12 to 18 months, using industry best practice and husbandry techniques, in accordance with strict environmental management guidelines.
This ensures we provide optimum growing conditions for our fish, whilst maintaining the delicate balance of our farm’s natural surroundings.
