Dallas has been in the business of oyster farming for close to 10 years, but has been working on the water all his life. Before oyster farming, he was a commercial fisherman out of Port Lincoln, and then he started engineering and driving tugboats all around Australia.
He did not even know what an oyster was when he first invested, but has loved the work so far. Dallas says it’s the beautiful scenery and wildlife that makes oyster farming great. While farming, he has seen whales and leather back turtles out in Denial Bay, where he works. He even brings his boys out to the water to collect sea horses.
While the scenery can be beautiful, the environment can be very harsh. There is lots of dust, flies, and mosquitoes out there and the weather can range anywhere from 50 degrees to -2 degrees.
Dallas likes to surf, camp, and fish on his free time; essentially the guy never gets off the water. If he does have the chance to get back on land, he loves to travel.
