Make a splash in a growing industry
Seafood is the most consumed animal protein in the world and demand continues to grow. Just over 50% of consumed seafood now comes from farmed sources. It’s predicted that aquaculture will need to supply another 30 to 40 million tonnes of seafood to meet the global demand by 2030 as product from wild catch fisheries is unlikely to increase.
Demand for seafood is rapidly increasing in Asia, China in particular. Australia has a global reputation for producing high-value, sustainable seafood products, exactly the products that China wants. The recently negotiated free trade agreement with China will remove all tariffs on seafood over the next 4 years opening up huge opportunities for Australian aquaculture.
Get in now to take advantage of the career opportunities this will bring.
