Aquaculture Strategy and Action Plan
The Minister Responsible for Fisheries released the Victorian Aquaculture Strategy and Action Plan on 4 April 2008.
The vision of the strategy is to grow the value of Victorian aquaculture to $60m by 2015 in a sustainable manner.
The growth of the aquaculture industry is important for all Victorians that want a sustainable supply of fresh seafood for future generations.
The Strategy has been developed following advice from a panel that included people with expertise in science, community, environment, industry, finance and government issues. It includes six strategic objectives and twenty-four actions to be implemented in consultation with an industry reference group.
Implementing the strategy will realise advances in technology, new capital investment, regional economic growth and secure high-value seafood for all Victorians.
