Cone Bay is off the coast of Western Australia, and farms Australia’s best barramundi in deep sea fish farms. There are three stages in the Cone Bay Ocean Barramundi

The juveniles are graded regularly for size and quality with only the best of each group being transported direct to the farm, where they are then hand reared in the Cone Bay nursery. When they are at the perfect time of their development they are delicately moved to the grow-out ocean cages where they remain swimming against the twice daily tides. Tides ranging between seven and eleven meters flow through Cone Bay daily ensuring that Cone Bay Ocean Barramundi are constantly swimming – just like they are in the wild.

The Cone Bay Ocean Barramundi are finally harvested directly from their sea-cages onto the harvest board, where the fish are packed and transported fresh to markets around Australia.
