Operating under Pacific Reef Fisheries (PRF), we're one of the largest suppliers of sustainably farmed premium black tiger prawns in the country, producing over 20 percent of Australia’s farmed prawns. Spread over 96 ha in Ayr, our annual output of premium black tiger prawns is over 1,000 tpa (tonne per annum).
Penaeus monodon aka black tiger prawns are a popular and premium species in Australia and are the prawns that we grow. Our operations include a hatchery facility where we spawn full-grown broodstock and raise prawns from eggs to maturity.
What makes our aquaculture facility truly unique is how we manage wastewater. Our goal is to move towards zero total net discharge at our aquaculture facility using macroalgae to naturally remove pollutants from wastewater.
