A-Culture Holding Pty Ltd (‘A-Culture’) was established specifically to address an environmental negative, Riverland saline water, and turn it into a positive, by producing premium seafood products in a clean and green environment. Something that is under increasing demand globally.
Our environmentally sustainable Waikerie Aquaculture Project has the capacity to change the face of aquaculture in Australia. It will establish a unique multi species intensive indoor recirculating aquaculture system (OZRAS) facility in the Riverland of South Australia. The facility will make use of saline water from the vast local underground aquifer, helping to address the environmental damage that can occur when saline water is allowed to enter the Murray -Darling Basin.
A-Culture is creating an intensive indoor facility to produce consistently high quality seafood and deliver it fresh to local, national and international markets.
Using saline ground water also means fish can be produced in a pristine bio secure environment that is not susceptible to temperature and weather fluctuations. This will allow A-Culture to deliver high quality seafood all year round.
The project has the support of the District Council of Loxton Waikerie and Regional Development Australia. The South Australian Government also considers the project a much needed economic opportunity for the Riverland region, exploiting what is essentially a waste water resource. The next stage in the project is to build a prototype production facility on our site at Waikerie, to trial OZRAS efficiency’s which will involve growing Yellowtail Kingfish and Asparagopsis seaweed for CH4 Global.
