  1. Hello, my name is Greg McLean and I work in the Community and Economic Development team at Douglas Shire Council in Far North Queensland.
    We are home to one of Queensland’s largest prawn farming operations, Gold Coast Aquaculture, which is in the process of doubling the size of their ponds up here.
    In light of the terrible situation occurring on the Logan River, as a Council we have sat down to work out if we can be of any assistance.
    It appears we may be able to assist Gold Coast Aquaculture in establishing their hatchery up here and we are having further discussions with them in the coming days to see how we may be able to facilitate this.
    We are also keen to have a chat with you to see if there’s any assistance we can provide in assisting affected prawn farmers to transition their operations to the Douglas Shire or alternatively attracting new investment in the industry from existing prawn farm operators or even local landholders who may wish to explore these opportunities.
    Anyway, we’d very much like to have a chat to get some further information on the industry and if we may be of assistance.
    Please give me a call at your earliest convenience on 4099 9444 or 0427 187 138.

    Cheers.
    Greg McLean
