Recirculating aquaculture systems are an extremely water efficient way of growing a large number of fish in a small amount of water with a small land footprint. Water is constantly recirculated being filtered, purified and reinvigorated by the system. Now due to retirement of the owners the complete system is for sale.

History: Glencoe Fish Hatchery (GFH) supplied weaned pellet feeding Murray Cod fingerlings for other RAS grow-out systems of the commercial aquaculture industry, plus grown out Barramundi for the restaurant and market trade in Melbourne. All fingerlings produced by GFH came with a veterinary certificate to guarantee their health. Glencoe Fish Hatchery are proud to be one of the first hatcheries to have inside brood stock of Murray Cod which guarantees when they breed, their offspring will be of a high quality and health standard as the internal brood stock are not live caught but born and bred in tanks which means their natural instincts have changed and they live wholly on a pellet feed diet.
