a large-scale indoor barramundi and grouper fish farm using Australian Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) technology.

An aquaculture system developed on a farm outside Ingham is gaining acceptance as world-leading technology.

Vietnamese company United Seafood Packer Company (USPC) announced yesterday it had appointed Barramundi Blue Aquaculture of Bemerside as project managers and technology suppliers to its new $3.5 million fish farm venture at Phuoc Hai in the Vung Tau province.

The appointment follows another major export win for Barramundi Blue, which was launched by former Magnetic Island identities Geoff Orpin and Cynthia Taylor just four years ago.

The company is involved in a joint venture in South Korea developing a fish farm at Jeju Island with Korea and Australia Aquaculture Company Ltd.

Mr Orpin said Barramundi Blue had fended off competition from the likes of listed Perth-based Australis Aquaculture to win the contract with USPC.

"It's put us on top of the world stage in aquaculture development," Mr Orpin said.

"In publicity terms, the acceptance of the technology is insurmountable and in monetary terms, it's a healthy contract.

"More importantly, there are a lot of other companies which have systems out in the marketplace and Barramundi Blue technology has been accepted over them so we must be doing something right."

In its statement, USPC said it would take a 65 per cent stake in the SAI-PAC Fish Farm Company Ltd to build a large-scale indoor barramundi and grouper fish farm using Barramundi Blue's Recirculative Aquaculture System (RAS).

USPC is a Vietnamese seafood processor of frozen tuna and swordfish steaks, exporting about $US25 million ($29.6 million) worth of product annually.


USPC spokeswoman Nguyen Thi Minh Trang said SAI-PAC would invest $US3 million ($3.5 million) to build a 2000-tonne grow-out facility on a 6ha site at Phuoc Hai.
 

"The reason we have opted for the RAS technology over sea cages is because the latter is susceptible to many natural, environmental and human risks from red tides, typhoons, pollution, disease, logistics to piracy," she said.
 

She said Barramundi Blue's RAS technology would provide strict water quality standards, a disease and chemical-free environment and aquaculture management controls in a land-based farm that was second to none.


Mr Orpin said Barramundi Blue was now in discussions to export its technology to countries throughout Asia. The company was also planning an expansion of its own facilities to build a 1000-tonne a year operation at Lucinda.
 

The Bemerside farm which produces about 40 tonnes of barramundi a year operates using a recirculative system where water is treated and recycled.
 

Treated water is also used to grow hydroponic salad vegetables and the solid fish waste is processed and recycled as an organic fertiliser.


In Korea, the company plans to grow seaweed to clean water in a saltwater system.
 

Mr Orpin said he and his partner Cynthia Taylor had designed the RAS system by `working backwards'.
 

"We worked from the end product backwards," he said. "We decided that if we were going to grow fish and we knew how much we could sell them for, we devised a system that provided the profit we needed.
 

"Now it's paid off."

 2000 tonne barramundi facility to be built in Vung Tau


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Ms Nguyen Thi Minh Trang, Deputy General Director and co-owner of United Seafood Packers Company Ltd (USPC) Binh Duong Province, Vietnam (www.uspc.com.vn ), announced that her Vietnamese company, recognised as one of the world’s top seafood processors of frozen tuna and swordfish steaks, exporting US$25 million annually, will take a 65% stake in SAI-PAC Fish Farm Co. Ltd., a large-scale indoor barramundi and grouper fish farm using Australian Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) technology.

 

SAI-PAC has confirmed it has been given an investment licence by the Planning & Investment Dept. along with the Fishery Dept. of Ba Ria Vung Tau province and will invest 3 million US dollars to build a 2,000 metric ton growout facility located at a “Marine Hatchery Center Park” in Vung Tau province.  SAI-PAC has completed a one-yea intensive study and research on suitable locations and finally decided on the seaside area of Phuoc Hai, Ba Ria Vung Tau Province as to avoid the growing pollution, ever more violent weather patterns and red tide issues.

 

“Mr Nguyen Minh Chi, the director of the Fishery Dept. of Ba Ria Vung Tau province, has been very supportive in helping us to obtain the 6 hectare land site for our project.  All the local government authorities are very positive about this project because of its RAS technology that allows the growing of sustainable fish and causing no harm to the Environment”, said Ms Trang.

 

The SAI-PAC Fish Farm Co. Ltd. will be the largest indoor RAS growout facility in South East Asia, if not the world within 12 to 18 months, and for this reason, according to the spokesman for SAI-PAC, Mr Nguyen Anh Phong, “we feel very positive about the appointment of Barramundi Blue Aquaculture International (BBAI) of North Queensland, Australia, as our project manager and supplier of RAS technology.”

 

“The reason we have opted for the RAS technology over sea cages is because the latter is susceptible to many natural, environmental and human risks, from red tides, typhoons, pollution, disease, logistics to piracy.  BBAI’s technology will allow us to have the strictest water quality, disease and chemical free environment and aquaculture management controls in a land based farmer are superior to an external facility’” Ms Trang added.

 

BBAI will provide the supply of Australian barramundi fry to complete the growing process.

 

“We are very excited about this project and we believe our fish will walk its way into the world market for the type of quality fish we are going to produce,” Ms Trang concluded.
