nullSouth Australia is widely viewed as a world leader in the sustainable development of aquaculture, with dedicated legislation in place to protect and manage the Stateís aquatic resources.

Boasting an international reputation for producing premium, sustainable seafood, the regionís aquaculture industry produces some of the most sought after seafood in the world. From Southern Bluefin Tuna, Kingfish, Mussels and Oysters, to Barramundi, Marron and Abalone, South Australia's farmed seafood delicacies feature on restaurant menus everywhere.

South Australia is home to the most diverse range of aquaculture in Australia, including subtidal and intertidal mollusc farming, sea-cage farming of finfish and a range of landbased systems. The protection of the aquatic environment through environmental monitoring, aquatic animal health programs and strict zoning requirements, ensures South Australian seafood retains a high standard of environmental credentials while providing certainty and opportunity for industry investment.
