In Queensland, Barramundi occur naturally from the Mary River in south east Queensland to the Gulf of Carpentaria. There has been considerable interest in this species as a farmed table  fish.  They have demonstrated their suitability for growing in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) as well as in open ponds. Over recent years cage culture of this species has also shown considerable promise. A significant Barramundi grow-out industry has now developed in Australia.
