Huon Aquaculture is the first in Australia to offer customers a range of RSPCA Approved farmed Atlantic Salmon.
Huon Aquaculture has always had a focus on sustainability and animal welfare. They are committed to placing fish health and welfare at the centre of their farming operations. As a fully vertically integrated company, Huon Aquaculture have control over every aspect of their business, this enables them to have strict regulations making fish welfare a priority.
On Huon’s farms with the RSPCA Approved certification, there’s a focus on good fish welfare for the entire lifecycle of the fish, by providing space to swim normally in oxygen-rich water where they are stocked at an average density of 1% fish to 99% water, there’s a focus on keeping fish free from injury and disease. The fish are handled only when necessary and, in a manner, to help reduce stress.
Currently around 98% of Huon Salmon is raised to the RSPCA’s Standard for farmed Atlantic salmon. By looking for the RSPCA Approved logo you can be assured that your salmon is coming from farms that have the RSPCA Approved certification.
Please note: During a few weeks of the year, Huon Salmon could be sourced from farms located in Macquarie Harbour, Tasmania. The RSPCA’s Standard currently doesn’t permit farming in Macquarie Harbour and therefore these salmon products won’t be labelled as RSPCA Approved. Currently 2% of Huon Aquaculture’s total salmon production is from Macquarie Harbour.
