A report has been made that during rough weather a small portion of net headline dropped below the water level. Whilst minimal in scale the operating company has indicated that there was potential for fish escape.

The incident was reported immediately to PIRSA Aquaculture, and it appears at this stage that there has not been any fish lost from the cage in question.
