New aquaculture leases granted for Australian state

The government of the Australian state of New South Wales has approved 50 hectares of aquaculture leases on the state’s south coast. Minister for Primary Industries, Katrina Hodgkinson, said the move was to meet increasing demand for quality seafood.

“Sustainable seafood production is an important focus for the NSW Government as approximately 85 per cent of the seafood currently purchased in NSW is imported,” Ms Hodgkinson said.

The grants include a 10 hectare site off Vincentia and two areas of 20 hectares off Callala Beach. Ms Hodgkinson said the leases would be tendered to commercial enterprises to allow them to grow native shellfish species including blue mussels, scallops and oysters.

“The lease can also be used to grow edible seaweeds and other marine algae. This activity is likely to compliment a newly established Shoalhaven industry cluster that uses algae to manufacture high-tech biomaterials for the medical, food, cosmetic and renewable energy sectors,” she said.

As a condition of the approval, there is a requirement to report annually on lease performance.
