Huon Aquaculture is pleased to see positive results stemming from the first annual Yellow Bluff (Storm Bay) Broadscale Environmental Monitoring Program (BEMP) report conducted by the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS).
Peter Bender, Huon Aquaculture's Managing Director and CEO, said that based on the initial data and parameters surveyed, there is no evidence to suggest that farming at Huon's Yellow Bluff lease has had a system-wide influence on the water quality, soft-sediment, and inshore reef habitats of Storm Bay.
'The purpose of the BEMP program is to assess the environmental performance of salmon farming on the western side of Storm Bay, and to determine any impact from Huon's operations on the surrounding waterway,' he said.
