Want To Buy A Fish Farm?
Aquaculture involves the breeding, growing and harvesting of fish or marine vegetation with a view to selling them for commercial purposes. The fish may be sold directly to the public or to a wholesaler or distributor. The fisheries and primary industries are regulated in Australia by the state and territory governments.
In NSW, there are 3 main types of aquaculture businesses according to the department of primary industries (DPI):
- Land based aquaculture (requiring an aquaculture permit). This involves the culture of a range of species such as prawns and silver perch within hatchery, grow out and fish out facilities.
- Estuarine based aquaculture (requiring an aquaculture permit and lease). This is dominated by oyster farming, the oldest and most valuable aquaculture sector in the State.
- Marine based aquaculture (requiring an aquaculture permit & permit). This involves the culture of finfish and molluscs utilising infrastructures such as sea cages and shellfish longlines and is an emerging sector in NSW. Planning guidelines for this sector of the industry are currently under development.
More information about fishery and aquaculture businesses can be found on the department of primary industries website: dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishing/aquaculture
