If you don't know who Dr. Stuart Rowland is click here. He is the father of freshwater finfish aquaculture in Australia !!

Condabilla Fish Farm is a unique native freshwater fish grow-out facility, probably one of the largest in Australia. Their aim is to develop a world-class aquaculture project at Condabilla dedicated for the production of Murray Cod, Queensland Silver Perch and Golden Perch. The project is based southwest of Chinchilla on the western edge of the Darling Downs. The latest production technologies from around the world are being used to create a product of the highest order. Their main pond system is based on the Partitioned Aquaculture System (PAS) from Clemson University, SC, USA.

The production system is designed for HACCP accreditation both as a food safety program and a production risk program. This enables them to guarantee a reliable high quality product. 

The production system is aimed at the customer who wants to develop a relationship based on medium to large orders contracted over long time periods.
