DISEASE FREE certified hatchery. Since 1985 Ausyfish has been submitting samples to the Queensland Government Biosecurity Sciences Laboratory for health testing. These tests are comprehensive. They include gross, and histology examination, (histopathology) of each sample submitted. In 2010, Ausyfish volunteered to participate in a new scheme designed to better capture the health of fish at our aquaculture facility. This new scheme developed by the Queensland Government, the Fish Health Certification Program, (FHCP) requires samples to be sent on a regular basis regardless of where the fish were to be sold. As a result Ausyfish is now a "Disease Free Certified Hatchery" Click for details about our fish health and biosecurity.
MINIMUM QUANTITY FOR EXPORT We can't export small quantityies of fish. This is because of the very involved process to export live Australian native fish. The airlines also usually impose minimum freight weights. Usually they charge for 100kg even if you only send a single box of 11kg. The process for sending live fish itself is very involved. It is therefor necessary to have a shipment that has the economies of scale to cover the whole process.
The minimum shipment value is AUD$3,000.00, plus all the other shipping costs. We suggest that you firstly look into your countries requirements for you to import live fish. We can provide all the necessary documentation including health/disease free certificates issued by Australian authorities. Please note GST does not apply to export orders.
SPECIES SUITABLE FOR AQUAPONICS AND FARM DAMS WHERE PERMITTED. Ausyfish Pty Ltd are producers of most Australian native fingerlings. These fingerlings are suitable for grow-out in aquaponic systems, and commercial fish farms, AND stocking in farm dams. In Queensland fingerlings may not be stocked in farm dams if they are not permitted under the translocation rules. Doing so is a serious fisheries offence and will attract heavy penalties. Click here to find out what you are permitted to put in your farm dam. For information about suitable fingerlings for farm dams Click here. For other Australian states please check with your appropriate authority before stocking fingerlings.
