UNDERPINNING THE GROWTH OF AUSTRALIA’S BLUE ECONOMY

UNDERPINNING THE GROWTH OF AUSTRALIA’S BLUE ECONOMY

Tapping into the Potential of Australia’s Sustainable Oceans

The opportunities to grow the blue economy are vast.

Australia, with the World’s third largest Exclusive Economic Zone and New Zealand, have enormous potential to use their oceans sustainably to increase seafood and renewable energy production.

Realising this potential requires moving offshore into new and more exposed high-energy operating environments requiring new production systems that can withstand both regular and extreme weather events, while being safely and economically managed.

Bringing together expertise from leaders in aquaculture, marine renewable energy and maritime engineering

The Blue Economy CRC brings together 40 industry, government, and research partners from ten countries with expertise in aquaculture, marine renewable energy, and maritime engineering.

Through targeted and industry focussed research and training, the Blue Economy CRC paves the way for innovative, commercially viable and sustainable offshore developments and new capabilities that will see significant increases in renewable energy output, seafood production and jobs that will transform the future of Australia’s traditional blue economy industries.
