The waters around the Tasman Peninsula have sustained commercial fishing for more than
150 years. Prior to 1950 the area was a major supplier of rock lobster (crayfish), and scale fish
for the Hobart market. Since 1965 abalone diving has become a most important commercial
fishery. Recently the peninsula's protected bays have become prize sites for aquaculture.
Initially this form of marine farming was directed at shellfish, particularly oysters and mussels.
Cage culture of rainbow trout and Atlantic salmon recently has become important.
