The local community has the opportunity once again to adopt their very own barramundi fish, courtesy of Port Lincoln High School’s Aquaculture program. For $20, each “parent” will be allocated a barramundi fingerling. The fish will be individually tagged (in June), monitored and managed by PLHS Aquaculture students, with “Adoption Papers” and email updates provided throughout the latter half of the year.
At the conclusion of the school year, the barra will be harvested and become available as whole fish, fresh fillets or smoked fillets. Alternatively, fish can be donated back to the school for breeding purposes.
The first 50 adoptive parents will receive – at no extra cost – an extra fish product of their choice. Don’t miss out!
There are also great prizes up for grabs. In 2015, the Largest Fish prize was won by Glen Karutz, whose adopted fish weighed in at 990 grams; Glen won a $100 voucher. The Mystery Fish (chosen at random) was won by Kye Nisbet, who received a fishing reel. Congratulations to Glen and Kye, and many thanks to our generous sponsor, Seamaster Fishing Supplies.
To be a part of Adopt-a-Barra 2016, please download the following Registration Form, and return your completed form (along with $20 payment per fish) to the School.
The Year 11 Aquaculture Students of Port Lincoln High School thank you in advance of your support.
