Sustainabilty of VIC fisheries that supply VIC local fresh seafood
Victoria’s waters have an amazing diversity of marine life including Eastern School Prawn, Southern Rock Lobster,
Eastern School Whiting, Snapper, Yelloweye Mullet and Greenlip Abalone to name a few.
You can learn about the sustainability of many of the species caught in Victoria’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.
