Ben completed his Bachelor of Science in Aquaculture in 1999 at the University of Tasmania. Ben went on and gained experience in plumbing wholesale and retail in his local town of Bowral while planning and constructing a pilot/demonstration recirculating aquaculture facility in Moss Vale, NSW to grow Barramundi for the local market. By designing, building and operating a modern recirculating system along with his education, Ben has now taken over the operations of a long-standing family owned company ‘Serolo Pty Ltd’.
With the support and cooperation of major suppliers, Ben has moved into aquaculture project management, system design and installation of commercial and research recirculating aquaculture facilities, manufacture and distribution of quality aquaculture products for fish and crustaceans to the Australian and Asia Pacific region. Ben has a passion for the aquaculture industry, which has in turn formed one of Australia’s leading one stop shop for quality aquaculture equipment and advice.
