Aquaculture Enterprises

About this project

A 900 year history of trading Trepang (sea cucumber) between Groote Island and S.E. Asia gives proves that it is possible to build a long term and sustainable aquaculture enterprise. Three main species have been identified for commercialisation trials. These are the Rock lobster, Trepang (Sandfish) and Oysters (Blacklip).

The strip-mining method on Winchelsea will result in over 190 ponds suitable for growing out the hatchlings that will be nurtured in the hatcheries in the Little Paradise area.
