Fishing & Aquaculture
This National Fishing and Aquaculture Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) Strategy establishes the future direction to improve the focus, efficiency and effectiveness of RD&E to support Australia’s fishing and aquaculture industry over the next five years.
The primary outcome from the National Fishing and Aquaculture RD&E Strategy will be that the Australian community derives optimal economic, environmental and social benefits from its fishing and aquaculture resources.
To achieve this outcome the following three “value chain” outcomes must be addressed by the Strategy:
- Fishing and aquaculture are managed for environmental sustainability.
- Fishing and aquaculture are prosperous and viable.
- Fishing and aquaculture contribute to meeting recreational, indigenous customary, and community needs.
