This is a video [5:52 min] about large scale farming salmon at Huon Aquaculture in southern Tasmania. It illustrates the the operation of the aquaculture business, its infrastructure, the salmon life cycle and the efficiency levels of salmon production gained. The commentary initially focuses on the importance of aquaculture in feeding the world; how Huon Aquaculture achieves vertical integration; and how the production value of farmed salmon compares to wild-caught. The next part focuses on the fish pens used in the aquaculture operation, the value of small research pens, the design of full-size production pens, and explains the need to prevent seals from raiding the pens. The video concludes by presenting viewers with a challenge to design a safer, healthier and more secure fish pen.
