Back to results

This video is about producing Barramundi using aquaculture. There is a worksheet teachers can download below.
Video in review: Lance Vater is the Managing Director at Robarra in Robe, SA. This company is producing Barramundi, a premium native fish, which is grown outside its natural growing environment. Barramundi is a fast growing fish. In these conditions Barramundi can grow all year round as opposed to in the wild (5-6months). The conditions for optimal growth are discussed – water temperature (Artesian), UV filtration, and other filtration processes. They use the nutrient rich water to fertilise land to grow pasture. The live fish are sold in markets in Sydney and Melbourne.
