Aquaculture

Our aquaculture research is aimed at delivering significant increases in production to ensure future food security, while minimising environmental impacts.decorative

Our research into aquaculture industries and technology includes climate change adaptation and resilience, native marine species propagation and production, and improving biosecurity.

With salmon farming being the fastest growing animal food-production sector worldwide, Tasmania is significantly expanding its salmon farming capacity. We are leaders in this area, with innovations in other emerging industries involving rock lobster and abalone.

Our aquaculture research disciplines include

  • Animal performance
  • Aquaculture innovation
  • Aquatic animal health, biosecurity and welfare
  • Ecosystem effects and interactions
  • Global seafood trends
