  1. Notes that Huon Aquaculture's kingfish farm off the coast of Port Stephens experienced a structural failure in January 2018.

  2. Notes that as a result of the fortress pen's failure, 20,000 mature kingfish have escaped into the Port Stephens Great Lakes Marine Park.

  3. Notes the significant community concern regarding the environmental impacts of the failure, the potential economic impact on commercial fishers, and the steps being taken by Huon Aquaculture to prevent future failures.
