2022 Tasmanian Salmon Symposium

Tuesday 10th & Wednesday, 11th May 2022
Wrest Point, Hobart


The Blue Economy Cooperative Research Centre is hosting the 2022 Tasmanian Salmon Symposium.

Global initiatives, including the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and the High Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy, are building momentum for a sustainable ocean economy in which effective protection, sustainable production, carbon neutrality and equitable prosperity go hand in hand. Sustainable aquaculture, offshore renewable energy and protection of habitats and biodiversity are core elements of a sustainable ocean economy.

Building on the 2017 Planning for a Blue Future Global Salmon Conference in Tasmania, this symposium will examine and discuss issues in international best practice, research and developments in contemporary offshore and associated land-based aquaculture systems.

The symposium will consider ethics, values and social licence of aquaculture in offshore environments. We will consider the risks and opportunities of moving into offshore environments including innovative ocean accounting, opportunities for multispecies and integrated multitrophic aquaculture, offshore engineering and innovative technologies, responsible feed production and low carbon farming technologies.

The outcomes of this symposium will be one of the inputs into the Tasmanian Government’s next 10-year Salmon Future Directions Plan.


The 2022 Tasmanian Salmon Symposium is currently taking expressions of interest from those wishing to attend. Due to limited numbers, the event will also be available as a virtual symposium for those who cannot attend in-person.
