Aquaculture Project at Durack School


We are delighted to have received funding from the NT Government to develop an aquaculture/ hydroponics program at our school. raising barramundi and using water from the fish tank for a hydroponics system. The barramundi will be released into the Durack Lakes to enhance the Neighbourhood Fishing Program. A shed will be built to house the aquaphonics infrastructure and students will have responsibilities in feeding the fish etc. This will provide a hands-on experience for our students adding value to learning in core curriculum areas such as science, literacy and numeracy. We will be working in partnership with Taminmin High School and the Department of Fisheries. Special thanks to Lia Finocchiaro, MLA, for initiating and supporting the development of the project.
