Offering a unique lifestyle opportunity with scalable business potential and limited market competition, Cascades Caviar on the Murrindindi River is one of Victoria's largest gravity fed trout farms.
The property is a freehold farming selection of 22 acres on the banks of the river, backing onto the beautiful Black Range State Forest. The property uses 20 million litres per day of spring fed water. Founded in 1988 and making use of a now unattainable river diversion licence, the farm has been carved out of the Murrindindi Valley beside the Murrindindi River, being developed into one of the only fish farms in the country that does not rely on electric-powered recirculation.
As a potential caviar farm, the property offers the ideal lifestyle hobby farming opportunity you have been looking for, with the capacity to produce a product that requires only one hand milking of the fish per year. The eggs may be frozen which allows managed processing of the caviar and controlled distribution to sales throughout the year.
Please contact for current market pricing and return on investment.
Be 1 of only 2 fresh water caviar producing farms in Australia; no new licences since 1990 and no suitable new sites available means that there is no more competition for fresh water caviar.

There is a 3 bedroom self-contained unit as well as a bungalow with bathroom facilities, a processing facility, state of the art recirculation hatchery, fingerling area, brood stock area, and 20 grow-out ponds all connected to an 80 metre long concrete channel for grading and processing fish.
All stock, plant and equipment, and licenses will be included in the sale.
