Ausyfish was established by Bruce Sambell in 1988. Stage one consisted of 28 ponds, 10m by 20m, and 2 quarter acre ponds. The water for these ponds was supplied by a 5 acre storage dam, seen in the bottom right of the aerial picture below. In 1992 an expansion program began that so far has increased the farm to 127 ponds and 3 storage dams. Natural vegetation has been retained wherever possible.
Ausyfish receintly completed a major up-grade of its facilities. Improvements to date include a new laboratory, quarantine room, climate control room, as well as a new extension almost tripling the hatchery complex. Improved pond aeration and water delivery to ponds have also been completed. Click picture for a closer look. Underground three phase power has been installed througout the farm.
