RESEARCH PROGRAM #2:

SEAFOOD AND MARINE PRODUCTS

Supporting existing industries move offshore and develop, test and evaluate innovative product, production and processing systems for a range of seafood species.

The objective of the Seafood and Marine Products Program (Program 2), is to develop offshore aquaculture systems that provide viable and sustainable growth opportunities for this sector.

Commercialisation opportunities include novel aquaculture system designs for emerging species in collaboration with Program 1, and new seafood products, as well as the development of supply chain aquaculture activities (e.g. platform-based hatcheries and processing). Identification and development of premium export products and new export markets will ensure the expectations of high end-users are met.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

  • Healthy, safe and sustainable seafood

  • Innovative and integrated offshore culture systems
  • Diversification of seafood and marine products and markets
