Sustainability of TAS fisheries that supply TAS local fresh seafood
Tasmania’s waters have an amazing diversity of marine life including Southern Rock Lobster, Blue Mackerel,
Eastern School Whiting, Silver Trevally, to name a few.
You can learn about the sustainability of many of the species caught in Tasmania’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.
