Come and experience a working Atlantic Salmon farm in the Tamar Estuary called Petuna Aquaculture – Rowella. We produce about 2500 ton of Atlantic Salmon using the latest technology and applying best practices to every part of the process. The farm is unique in that it is fully accessible from the shore unlike all other Salmon farms in Tasmania.
A unique opportunity to get up close with the day to day running of the only Atlantic Salmon farm on the Tamar Estuary. Speak to senior staff about what it takes to farm Salmon on the Tamar Estuary.
Children aged 8 and over only permitted on tours, and must be supervised closely by an adult at all times.
We regret that tours are not suitable for pushchairs, or wheelchair access.
Please note that the marine farm will be operational during the festival and this will include the harvesting of fish, a mechanical process carried out with best practice and the welfare of fish uppermost in mind.
