Marron Aquaculture

Listed below are a number of documents and hyperlinks that may assist persons interested in undertaking marron aquaculture in WA.  The list is not extensive however and ACWA strongly suggests you undertake additional searches from other sources of information, in particular with the Department of Fisheries WA.

The Marron Growers Association of Western Australia is a member of the Aquaculture Council of WA and works to represent, inform, support and assist marron growers and those looking to set up commercial marron growing on whatever scale.  You can find further information on marron farming and you can join the Association by viewing their website by clicking on the link below:
