RAS Talk: An inside look at Australia’s aquaculture industry


Dr. Paul Harrison, co-founder and chief scientist at MainStream Aquaculture.

Past RAS Talk episodes have had a particular focus on various salmon and trout species because they’re known to be some of the more ‘established’ aquaculture species in Europe and North America. However, globally, barramundi, also known as Asian sea bass, is an aquaculture-established species. Production is especially established in Australia, where MainStream Aquaculture, said to have the largest warm water aquaculture farm of its type and is also the largest Barramundi fingerling supplier in Australia and the world, has its five facilities. In the final RAS Talk episode of 2021, Dr. Paul Harrison, co-founder and chief scientist at MainStream Aquaculture gives listeners a peak into the aquaculture industry in Australia and MainStream Aquaculture’s operations.
