Tassie’s Tassal – Introducing Will
Investing over $70 million in new Sanctuary Pens.
The design of our new Sanctuary Pens is just one of the ways we invest in our industry. The Sanctuary Pens keep our people and fish safe while keeping seals out! The netting is made from a patented heat treated bi-polymer, which is both rigid and strong. The single walled design significantly decreases algal growth and allows for fluid movement with the waves. Our pens are scientifically tested in environments overseas to ensure safety of infrastructure as we move into more exposed, further off-shore farming regions.
