Hide / Show Abstract

Commercial fisheries and aquaculture are Australia’s fifth most valuable rural industry, consisting primarily of low-volume, high-value species for export. Volume and value have been negatively affected by changes in a number of important variables, like rising fuel prices, the appreciation of the Australian dollar, and increased competition on the domestic market from low value imports.
