Member since: May 2017

Founded in 1977 by industry pioneers, Jim and Bruce Malcolm, Uarah Fisheries is the world’s first modern Murray cod farm and large-scale native fish hatchery.
Our farm and hatchery adjoins the pristine waterways of the Murray-Darling Basin, and we source our water from the snow-fed Murrumbidgee river catchment. We have full control over our entire production cycle from the nurturing of brooding stock to the hatching of larvae and the production of table fish. This allows us to ensure the selection of the highest quality table fish and fingerlings for delivery all year round.
While we are pioneers, we are a forward-looking organisation in a rapidly-growing industry. For 2017 onwards, we have set our sights on developing more sustainable fish husbandry and farm management techniques, and building a global market for Australian freshwater fish.
