The Meggitt family (L-R) - Derrick, Ed, Hugh and Gay
were keen to move out of trout farming and as a result the
trout farming activities of the Leake’s farm and the
Walnut Island farm were brought together into Goulburn River
Trout Pty Ltd with the Meggitts moving to 100% control of
the company within a few years.
trout farms are approximately 6 kilometres apart, on the Goulburn
river, approximately 20 kilometres downstream from Lake Eildon.
