SEAFOOD INDUSTRY PROGRAMS
SeaNet – Fisheries Extension Program
SeaNet is an initiative of OceanWatch Australia and was established in 1999. It focuses on providing an environmental extension service to the Australian seafood industry, through a unique network of fisheries conservation experts known as SeaNet officers.
The program offers information and advice on how to improve fishing gear, techniques, technology and also provides practical assistance to preserve Australia’s sustainable seafood industry. SeaNet officers identify issues which directly relate to commercial and recreational fishing, and help to develop solutions which will benefit and strengthen the future of the industry.
This is done by working with members of the Australian seafood industry, Government bodies, natural resource managers, researchers, businesses and local communities. SeaNet is managed by OceanWatch Australia.
Please note the SeaNet program finished in 2013.
