Barramundi Juvenile Feeding Vortex

One of the unusual behavior traits of juvenile Barramundi is this vortex swimming where they slowly form a rotating column and rise off the bottom toward the surface once feed has been added to the tank.

Our system feeds every 20 minutes and we use a mix of pellet sizes to over-come the cannibalism. This procedure has proven to reduce sorting time and assists to produce a far more even growth with low mortality. We developed the technology and it will become industry standard.

Here we see 20,000 fingerlings in 10,000 litres of saltwater. This was our first such experiment. Survival was better than 80%. The technology is now driving Coral Trout Research.
