Port Lincoln, Australia, tuna companies will continue to farm further offshore after southern bluefin tuna cages have been successfully trialled in deeper water.

Sarin Marine Farm will farm further offshore for the third year in a row, while it is expected Blaslov Fishing Company and the Stehr Group will also farm out in the deeper water for the upcoming season.

The deeper farming zone is located about 20 miles from the Port Lincoln marina.

The deeper cages are about 16 meters deeper than the normal cages used to farm southern bluefin tuna, and travelling time for fishers to get to the new zone is a six-hour round trip from the Port Lincoln marina.
