Satellite Island Salmon And Oyster Farm
Satellite Island Salmon is a boutique salmon grower producing salmon in pens in the pure waters off Satellite Island in the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, Southern Tasmania. The salmon are hand fed and individually harvested by hand. They are not overstocked and are able to swim freely in the pristine waters surrounding one of Tasmania’s only privately owned islands. Satellite Island salmon are known for their quality, freshness, taste and texture.
Satellite Island has been involved in aquaculture in Tasmania since the early 1960s. It has had some of Tasmania’s largest oyster leases in Southern Tasmania on the Middleton Shoal and at Isthmus Bay. Satellite Island was one of the founding Salmon farms in the Salmon Industry when it began in Tasmania in 1986. The business has produced salmon for the local market and for export to Japan, China and South East Asia. It has also produced oysters for the local and international markets.
