Tasmania is surrounded by some of the world’s cleanest waters, providing an abundance of opportunities in seafood, shellfish, aquaculture and ocean tourism. And as Australia’s southernmost port, Hobart acts as a gateway to Antarctica for maritime and research services. 

It is because of our close working relationship with this large variety of seafood and maritime industries that SMT has become Australia’s preferred industry training provider.

A review of the Living Marine Resources Management Act 1995 has been launched to find a pathway to modernise Tasmania’s fisheries legislation. The review will examine approaches to improve how we manage our important marine resources and consider whether the Act is flexible and responsive to future risks and challenges including climate change and uncertain global markets. The Tasmanian fishing sector, interested stakeholders and the wider community will have the opportunity to comment and engage during the review process.

Get investors out of the industry and let younger people have a go. Too many people making money out of a Tasmanian resource from their armchairs. They also dont return money into the industry

Theres no incentive in the industry for young people fresh out of school to get in to the wild catch industry frankly I don’t blame them why would any keen young bloke want to get into the fishing industry wether it’s state or commonwealth when it’s so messed up with investors , gotta get them out of it back to owner operators
