Salmon Lifecycle : 3. Smolt (FarmVR)

Back to results

In this immersive educational experience, Doug Paveley from Tassal explains how smolt are managed before transporting to the new sea pens. In this final step, a sample of 25 salmon from each tank have a blood test to make sure they have transitioned to be able to survive in salt water.

This VR experience is part of a series of VR education experiences around farming salmon. This is 'immersive education' and your students can experience what it is like to visit a salmon farm without leaving the classroom. These VR experiences are part of two Grade 5/6 resources based on the curriculum areas of science and technologies. The two resources you can also access here to find out more about farming salmon: Salmon Science - Growing a Salmon Leaper & Jeepers Creepers Salmon Leapers
The best way for your students to 'experience' this is to watch using FarmVR in 360 vision. To do this:
Step 1 - Install the FarmVR App on your mobile device https://www.farmvr.com.au/download/
Step 2 - Navigate to Aquaculture / Salmon / Dissection
