Ocean Barramundi Expansion Project

Proposal description: 

Marine Produce Australia propose to expand its barramundi farm operations to 13 sites spread across the Buccaneer Archipelago, in the Kimberley region. The total development envelope for the 13 leases is 1213 hectares. 

The proposed expansion will be staged over a 10-year period. Each stage consists of the construction of one nursery site, supplying 4–5 ocean-based lease areas, each of which will contain 12 sea-cages.  

The maximum standing biomass per lease area is up to 4500 tonnes. The total annual production/standing biomass for the proposal is 30,000 tonnes once fully operational.
