AUSTRALIA - American seafood lovers with a taste for Australian barramundi will soon have no trouble finding the fish on their menus. Barramundi farmer and exporter Australis Aquaculture Ltd, which currently sells about 500 tonnes of barramundi to Canada and the United States annually, says it expects to double its production in the region by next year. "We want to take it up to 1,000 tonnes of production a year, which will take place during the next year, which is effectively one million fish," managing director Stewart Graham said. Australis sells Australia's prized tropical fish, known for its buttery taste, into more than 600 supermarkets in Canada and the US, and a growing number of restaurants. Source: Seven News
