Launch of peak Australian seafood body

MInister Ruston: MInister Ruston: "We have been working closely with the commercial seafood sector to establish this peak national seafood industry body”

Australian Assistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, Anne Ruston, has launched a new peak national body for the seafood industry.

Seafood Industry Australia aims to promote the industry to the wider Australian community and gauge public sentiment about fishing activities and the management of the national marine environment.

“We have been working closely with the commercial seafood sector to establish this peak national seafood industry body,” said Minister Ruston.

“For three consecutive years now, no solely Commonwealth-managed fishery has been subject to overfishing”

“It’s vital that industry and the Turnbull Government continue to work together to improve our fisheries management. The launch of Seafood Industry Australia today is a positive step in that direction.”

With the support of more than 100 organisations and individuals, Seafood Industry Australia aims to be a strong advocate for the industry on issues of national importance to the seafood sector.

The Board of Seafood Industry Australia has expertise in wild-catch, aquaculture and post-harvest sectors and includes retailers and exporters.

Australia’s seafood industry also generates AUS$2.8 billion in economic activity and directly employs more than 14,000 people.
