‘FRDC recognises the critical importance of extension as an integral part of the R&D function. At the end of the day it is about changing peoples’behaviour,and that’s the essence of Seanet’


‘The Tide to Table program provides an effective vehicle for initiating constructive dialogue between land holders and the seafood industry.The ability of Tide to Table to approach environmental issues from an industry perspective is a key factor contributing to the success of the program.


The Tide to Table has opened up lines of communication between the fishing industry and members of the broader community through education and participation,leading to a better understanding of the environment in which the industry and the rest of the community rely on.
