Tasmaniapossesses a rich maritime heritage. Since European
settlement, the Tasmanian economy has been reliant on its
close links with the sea for trade. The unpolluted waters off
its coastline support a substantial wild fishing industry.
Tasmanians have always enjoyed access to quality seafood.
Until the 1970s, wild fisheries were the only significant
source of revenue from fishing in the State. A natural
progression of the Tasmanian's close relationship with the
sea has been the development of marine aquaculture. After
initial success with oyster and mussel farming in the 1970s,
Atlantic salmon farming commenced in 1986. More recently,
marine farming ventures have explored scallop, abalone and
striped trumpeter aquaculture.
