Golden Ornamental Barramundi

As good as gold

The existence of Golden Barramundi in the wild is extremely rare, with the chance of a Golden Barramundi being born one-in-ten million.

When Mainstream was founded nearly 20 years ago, there were anecdotal reports of rare golden and platinum coloured Barramundi being in existence. However, no tangible evidence was available to support these claims.

During its history, Mainstream has produced more than 1 billion Barramundi larvae from several thousand family lines and carried over 10 million individuals through its production facilities as juvenile fish.

The first golden fish was observed in 2008 and, with dedicated effort, these rare “golden” coloured Barramundi were isolated, genotyped, and grown to breeding size.

Since then, Mainstream Aquaculture has nurtured a Golden Barramundi population and commenced a dedicated Golden Barramundi breeding program.

The inquisitive and curious nature of Golden Barramundi make for outstanding aquarium fish, and these exclusive fish are now available to grace the exhibits of the most discerning enthusiasts.
