Jack Salt’s worked in oysters since he was a teenager, but in 2017 he got into the game himself, buying another farmer’s established business on Pambula Lake, NSW.
Owning his own business, making his own hours and spending a lot of time outdoors was all appealing to Jack, as well as building a career that gave him plenty of time to surf and fish was high on his list of priorities.
Oyster farming isn’t easy, but Jack’s investment in technology that will let him work smarter, not harder sure does make things easier.
This time on The Business of Fishing, Jack and his dog Rupert take us out onto Pambula Lake, to flip oyster bags, check the salinity of the water and talk about creating a business that suits the life you want.
The Business of Fishing is brought to you by the Young Farmer Business Program, an initiative of the NSW Department of Primary Industries.
