Grow-out Farms

   

Abalone is farmed on three aptly named farms in Hermanus:  Sea View, Amaza (waves) and Bergsig (mountain view).  Prime selected animals from the hatchery are placed on Sea View where expert staff provide them with the best possible care. Once the animals are of a suitable age and size, they are moved out to Amaza where the intermediate sized animals are housed.  Finally, the animals are settled on Bergsig to complete their growth phase.

Combined, the three farms comprise 6 hectares and house 2,000 land-based tanks that require more than 7,000 tons of pumped seawater every hour!
