Australian Ecomarine was established in February 2017 to continue the strategy of a small start-up business that began in 2011.
Ecomarine is currently in the final stocking stages of its 70 tonnes per annum Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) Grow-Out.
This is stocked with Giant Grouper for live fish sales to the local and export market.
Ecomarine’s new hatchery has started the life cycle program for Flowery Cod.
Ecomarine has wholesale customers in Brisbane and Sydney with expansion plans for Melbourne.
Exporting the fish is targeted to start in August 2018.
Ecomarine’s current single product line is live Giant Grouper.
