Vocational Visit to Mainstream Aquaculture - 73 Lock Ave, Werribee
Half of the club members undertook an extremely impressive tour of Mainstream Aquaculture. The organisation produces 90% of the Barramundi consumed in Australia, from their factory in Werribee.
Werribee was chosen as their is an aquafer 100 metres below the surface, that contains warm semi salty water which is perfect for producing Barramundi.
We toured the hatchery where 50 or so huge 1 meter barramundi, produce an unlimited supply of eggs. These are grown to fingerling size, then moved into the eight large tanks where they are fed, prior to being harvested about 7-9 months later, when they reach dinner plate size - 1/2 to 1 kg.
Each of the eight big tanks you see in the pictures,  hold about 90,000 fish.
The business turns over about $30 million, and is currently building a new plant in Arizona USA
Next week - 10.03.2020
No Meeting at ISCW
The second visit to Mainstream Aquaculture, 73 Lock Avenue, Werribee, will be held. The tour starts at 5.30pm
The tour is booked out. If you want to go speak to Jim Randall who may be able to fit you in if someone pulls out.
After the visit at about 6.45pm there will be a BBQ at Maddalon Transport, which is directly across the road.  People who went on the 03.03.2020 tour are welcome to join the BBQ, but let Jim Randall know if you are coming for catering purposes.
