Kingfish Farms Coming Back to Point Lowly

Point lowly.JPGClean Seas has proposed to relaunch its kingfish farms in the waters off Point Lowly.

The operation involves farming kingfish at sea before harvesting them for sale. The company’s first venture in the region was closed in 2010.

Whyalla Council representatives have met with Point Lowly shack owners to hear their views on the proposed relaunch of the operation.

The delegation heard from shack owners on land-based, and other, issues regarding the aquaculture venture.

While the council has no control over the approval process for the fish farm, they say they have a responsibility to surrounding shack owners.

The Council will now prepare a report to go to the elected members for consideration at the May ordinary meeting.
