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.

We pride ourselves on offering organisations and individual students, exceptional guidance throughout their complete training experience. This includes all of the documentation and follow-up necessary to ensure that qualifications remain current and in-keeping with changing legal requirements.

Congratulations an amazing achievementThe Industry Ambassador Award, pays homage to an individual or business who has made a substantial positive difference to the seafood industry over many years and who has been a highly effective and respected seafood industry leader. The independent judging panel unanimously agreed that the winner was clear.

The industry Ambassador recipients started their seafood journey back in 1971 when they purchased their first oyster lease in Dunalley.
Following this they, and several others, founded the states first oyster hatchery in Bicheno.

50 years later the founders of this company are still directors and with a third generation now at the helm, the business has grown to be one of the major oyster companies in Tasmania.

They have reputation of being innovative and as such are regraded as a leader within the industry.
And throughout their journey, they faced bushfires, POMS and Covid-19 – taking it all in their stride.

Jeff Ross, on behalf of IMAS, proudly presented the Industry Ambassador Award to The Cameron Family.
