River Stone Fish Farm

Overview

Barramundi is as good as the water in which it lives. At River Stone Fish Farm, our aquaculturists constantly control the quality of the water, to ensure a premuim quality barramundi, free of environmental contaminants. Consumers have demonstrated a marked prefrence for our Barramundi because it is consistent in quality and presentation, and it has a milder taste than other barramundi.

The need for premium quality, highly nutritious food grows as the world's population constantly increases. Most of the world's wild fish populations are now at or beyond maximum sustained yield, meaning that additional harvest reduces dramaticaly the fish available for next year's catch. River Stone Fish Farm we have built a state of the art recirculating aquaculture facility that nurses and grows out premium grade Australian Barramundi that caters for the Australian market.

We believe that aquaculture is most probable solution to providing a sustainable Australian Barramundi for this ever increasing market demand and shrinking supply of fish from the oceans. River Stone Fish Farm aquaculture facility is an enviromentally responsible alternative to fishing. We provide a consistent and reliable source of highly nutritious Australian Barramundi..

The Optimistic View

*****

The farming of aquatic organisms will be one of three major economic opportunities in the future. All around the world, everyone is either eating more fish, or thinking they should. Changes in dietary patterns, and the fact that all medical practitioner recommend eating fish as a significant protein source for the diet, are strong indicators that aquaculture will continue to expand.

Health Benefits

Research has shown that eating fish regularly is beneficial to our bodies in many ways; here are ten great reasons to introduce a little more seafood into your diet.

1. Barramundi is low in saturated fat and high in omega-3, which can protect the heart from disease and lower the amount of cholesterol in the blood. * 2. The human brain is almost 60% omega-3 fat. Research has indicated that people who eat plenty of fish are less likely to suffer dementia and memory problems in later life.

3.Eating fish can improve your circulation and reduce the risk of thrombosis. * 4.Eating fish as a regular part of a balanced diet has proven to ease the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

5. Eating fish regularly can help to keep the eyes bright and healthy. Fish also contain retinol, a form of vitamin A which boosts night vision. * 6. Fish provides the body with many essential nutrients which keep us running smoothly, including iodine, selenium, zinc and potassium. Iodine is important for the thyroid gland, and selenium makes enzymes which help to protect us from cancer. Fish are also excellent sources of vitamin A and D.

7. A number of studies have indicated that fish help protect our lungs. Not only can seafood relieve the symptoms of asthma in children, but it has shown signs of preventing it. * 8. Fish may also play a large part in preventing depression; research has highlighted links between low omega-3 levels and a higher risk of depression. Seafood could also help us to avoid Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and post-natal depression.

9. Not only does omega-3 help to protect the skin from the harmful effects of the UV damage, but eating lots of fish can also help with the symptoms of skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. * 10. Evidence suggests that a diet rich in fish oils can help to protect us against serious inflammatory bowel diseases (BD) including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

About Barramundi

Origins of Australian Barramundi...

About Barramundi

*****

Barramundi is a loanword from an Australian Aboriginal language of the Rockhampton area in Queensland meaning: "large-scaled river fish"..

The barramundi (Lates calcarifer) is a large predatory fish found in tropical regions of Australia. It is not native to NSW, and is not currently bred in hatcheries in this State. The colder climate and potential power costs involved with tank culture have, to some extent, restricted the development of this industry.

Barramundi has a natural distribution extending from the Ashburton River in Western Australia (WA), throughout the Northern Territory (NT), to the Maryborough River in Queensland (QLD). The barramundi is a greenish grey on the dorsal surface, changing to silver on the sides. The mouth is large and the eye glows red at night under flashlight.

The species is portrayed widely in northern Australian Aboriginal mythology where it has been used historically as a primary food item. It is also commonly regarded as the premium recreational sportfish in northern Australia.

Introduction

Why Aquaculture?

Aquaculture is the rearing and cultivation of aquatic animals...

Introduction

Why Aquaculture?

Fish from the seas and oceans are the last mass marketed food supplied to consumers by "hunter-gatherers". This method of providing produce is fast becoming obselete, and no longer able to meet current markets demands.As a result, and to meet the shorfall in seafood supply, Aquaculture is introduced.

Aquaculture, or Aquafarming, is the farming of aquatic organisms such as fish. Farming of Fish implies human intervention in the rearing process to maximise production. The art of farming fish requires regular breeding, feeding, provide a healthy environment, and protection from predators.

The recent great interest In aquaculture was spurred by the oil crisis of the early seventies that made the exploitation of aquatic resources through fish capture highly uneconomical and due to declining fish catches in major traditional fishing grounds in the world. The farming of fish was seen as the best option to catching fish to feed the growing human population.

Aquaponics

An alternative to Hydroponics

Aquaponics is the combination of Aquaculture and Hydroponics...

Aquaponics

What is Aquaponics

Aquaponics is a food production system that combines Aquaculture & Hydroponics in a symbiotic environment.

hydroponics requires expensive nutrients to feed the plants. Re-circulating aquaculture needs to have excess nutrients removed from the system, normally this means that a percentage of the water is removed, generally on a daily basis. In an aquaponic system, Nitrogen rich water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the Nitrogen is broken down into nitrates and nitrites, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients. The water is then recirculated back to the aquaculture system.

Sustainability

Sustainable food source

How can the world adequately feed more than 9 billion people by 2050 in a manner that advances economic development and reduces pressure on the environment?...

Sustainability

River Stone Fish Farm provides a 100% sustainable food source

Human population is at a point in time where there simply aren't plenty more fish in the sea. With over three-quarters of our global fish stocks either over-exploited or fished right up to their limit, there are only a few fisheries that will be able to serve up the planet's increasing demand for seafood. At River Stone Fish Farm, we believe that protecting fish habitats, and promoting sustainable fish supplies is important to both people and, of course, to wildlife.

At River Stone Fish Farm, we are dedicated to producing "Sustainable Barramundi" that reaches consumer plates with no impact upon wild barramundi populations, or the wider marine environments. all our barramundi is produced in recirculating aquaculture systems that has no impact on marine habitats, and do not depend on wild caught fish for feed.

What is RAS?

*****

Recirculating Aquaculture System...

RAS

*****

Recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) is an indoor stand-alone complete medium used to grow out marine life. At River Stone Fish Farm, we have developed a unique and efficient RAS that grown sustainable Australian Barramundi. It operates by filtering water from the barramundi tanks so it can be reused within the system again. This dramatically reduces the amount of water and space required to intensively produce barramundi. The steps in RAS include solids removal, ammonia removal, Co2 removal and oxygenation.

Conventional aquaculture methods, such as outdoor ponds, and net pen systems, are not sustainable, due to significant environmental issues, and the inability to guarantee safety of their products to the consumer. Conversely, River Stone Fish Farm RAS is sustainable, infinitely expandable, environmentally compatible, and guarantees both the safety and premium quality of the barramundi produced throughout the year.

The Background of Aquaculture

*****

While the world community has only recently viewed aquaculture as a potential solution to the dilemma of depleted oceans, it is by no means a new practice. In fact, the advent of aquaculture dates back millennia, though its exact origins are unknown. It most likely grew out of necessity foraging and hunting were not sufficient to provide a stable source of food to local communities. While there are many parallels to agriculture, the development of aquaculture has progressed more slowly than terrestrial farming because of the unfamiliar nature of the ocean terrain and characteristics of aquatic organisms.

C. F. Hickling the English aquaculture author, citing S. Y. Lin a noted Chinese aquaculturist, considered the earliest beginnings of aquaculture as during the period 2000–1000 B.C. This indicated that aquaculture has a long history dating as far as 4000 years ago. However, during the period, and especially before the advent of printing, no records were available except the narratives handed down from one generation to another especially those found in the seat of power during those periods. Admittedly, China was the cradle of the beginning of aquaculture utilizing mainly the common carp (Cyprinus carpio). It is said that aquaculture as a husbandry developed in China resulting from the fact that population started to have a settled condition and has been kept as an unbroken tradition. No detailed description of aquaculture practices was however available during that early period.

Heavy Metals

All River Stone Fish Farm Barramundi is gauaranteed to be free of all heavy metals

If you're like most health-conscious people, you're probably eating more fish these days. But along with heart-healthy omega-3 fats, you may be getting something in your seafood that's not so welcome: contaminants.

Fish products have been shown to contain varying amounts of heavy metals, such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic. Some species of fish that are long-lived and high on the food chain, such as marlin, tuna, shark, swordfish, king mackerel, tilefish , and northern pike, contain higher concentrations of heavy metals than others.

Also, the majority of the imported fish in Australia comes from Vietnam. The two varieties of Vietnamese catfish enter Australia disguised as Barramundi and Basa. These fish are farmed in make-shift farms along the Mekong River – one of the most polluted rivers in the world. Almost all thorough testing on Southeast Asian seafood revealed high contamination with heavy metals and antibiotics.. In some countries, such as USA, the Vietnamese basa fish is listed on the "Do not consume list".

That means it's up to you to choose the fish you eat wisely, and your best recourse for limiting exposure to potential harmful contaminants, is to look primarily for the origin of the fish you are eating. Stick with domestic responsibly farmed fish.

No Chemicals

River Stone Fish Farm guarantee all our fish does not contain nor treated with any chemicals

Watch Out for Sodium Tripolyphosphate In seafood (also known as: STPP), a neurotoxin

Our food comes from all over the world now, and unless you have your own personal jet plane, you're going to pay a price of some sort for "fresh" fish from the other side of the globe. That price could be a lab chemical designed to convince you that your fish is right off the boat when in truth, it just can't be. Almost majority of the seafood in the market is treated with STPP.

Sodium Tripolyphosphate is used as a food preservative. It helps retain moisture. It also helps products look fresh and keep selling weight higher.

It is used on a large scale as a component of many detergents, antifreeze and anticorrosion products. It is an inorganic widespread compound that causes major environmental problems, such as eutrophication

In the USA, STPP is a suspected neurotoxin according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health's (NIOSH) Registry of Toxic Effects of Chemical Substances. Food-grade STPP may cause acute skin irritation, and prolonged contact with skin should be avoided. STPP is listed on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act as a registered pesticide and it is also registered as an air contaminant under California's Occupational and Safety Health Act. The material safety data sheet lists STPP as toxic to the lungs with prolonged exposure having the potential to produce organ damage. This neurotoxin also has the ability to cause internal inflammation from those suffering from autoimmune diseases. Inflammation leads to painful flare-ups.
