The world's most loved Salmon

Peter and Frances Bender commenced salmon farming in 1988 in the beautiful waters surrounding their farming property at Hideaway Bay. What began as a diversification to the family cattle and sheep farming enterprises soon grew into a highly successful business that would dominate their commercial lives and the Huon region.

This area of southern Tasmania is renowned for its remote ruggedness. This is where water from the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area flows in the Huon River and meets the Southern Ocean in the D'Entrecasteaux Channel.

Huon's holding pens, the largest in the world, are moved regularly to fresh locations along the waterway to keep the salmon healthy and happy – a practice known as fallowing. Huon fish farms are located in this pristine marine environment – ensuring they stay clean and healthy – a key to the high quality of the Huon product. Strict control of feeding regimes, regular movement of enclosures and strategic fallowing of pen sites are among the many world’s best environmental management practices Huon follows to preserve and protect the aquatic marine environment, while rearing superior quality salmon.

To this day, Huon attributes the quality of its salmon to the philosophy of 'getting the basics right and attention to detail'. Focused solely on the goal of growing the best quality in the world, Huon set a high standard from the very beginning to ensure everything else would fall into place.

Family owned and operated, the Huon Aquaculture Group produces over 17,000 tonne of fresh salmon per year and is recognised globally as being the premium producer of fresh and smoked salmon products.
