HUON AQUACULTURE TEMPORARILY RELOCATES DAMAGED PENS

A Port Stephens fish farm has been forced to temporarily downgrade its kingfish operation.

Three pens have been towed to the Hunter River for maintenance and cleaning.

It comes after an investigation revealed large barnacles and strong seas caused a pen to release 20,000 fish earlier this year.

Huon Aquaculture has also addressed speculation it’s planning to move the operation to Stockton Bight, saying there are no immediate plans.
