ACH is happy to report the delivery of its first commercial batch of redclaw craylings to an Australian production farm.
The farmer reported that the craylings arrived in excellent condition with no mortalities and he is confident that he will achieve an outstanding crop. This is a first step in our journey for a brighter, healthier, and more profitable future for the redclaw crayfish industry in Australia. In less than 12 months these redclaw crayfish will be featuring in some of Australia’s—and hopefully the world’s—most prestigious restaurants.
Next, ACH had its first unscheduled challenge on Sunday, 12 February 2017. Due to repairs and maintenance of the water supply in the surrounding area of Mount St John, the ACH hatchery was without incoming water for more than eight hours. It is worthy of note that in most hatchery situations this would have been at best very problematic and at worst a catastrophe.
However, due to the unique design of the ACH hatchery facility, ACH were able to continue operations without incoming water for several days without compromising its production. Cheers to that!
