Sustainability of NT fisheries that supply NT with local fresh seafood
The Northern Territory’s waters have an amazing array of diversity of marine life, including the Barramundi,
the Ornate Rock Lobster, the Silverlip Pearl Oyster, Red Emperor and King Threadfin, to name a few.
You can learn about the sustainability of many of the species caught in the Northern Territory’s waters from
the Status of Australian Fish Stocks Reports. The Reports are the most scientifically valid, up-to-date,
information on Australian commercial fish populations.
The reports were worked on by over one hundred of Australia’s fisheries scientists and cover 83 different species.
Australia’s aquatic resources and the aquatic ecosystems in which they occur, if managed well,
are renewable and capable of providing a long term supply of sustainable seafood.
