Ausyfish was established by Bruce Sambell in 1988. Stage one consisted of 28 ponds, 10m by 20m, and 2 quarter acre ponds. The water for these ponds was supplied by a 5 acre storage dam, seen in the bottom right of the aerial picture below. In 1992 an expansion program began that so far has increased the farm to 127 ponds and 3 storage dams. Natural vegetation has been retained wherever possible.
