Company Launch SpeechWelcome to the Australian Seafood CRC
The seafood industry is the sixth most valuable of Australia's food-based primary industries, with a gross value of production of $2.05 billion in 2006-07.


The Seafood Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) officially opened for business on the 6th August 2007.


 The Seafood CRC is a commercial organisation, with industry in the majority on the board, and the centre is backed by top researchers around Australia.


 Managing Director, Dr Len Stephens says, "The aim is to drive dollars into industry pockets through innovative collaborative research across the whole of the seafood value chain. The focus of the research will be on production efficiency and profitability, as well as lifting the quality and integrity of products from this multi-sector group".


Executive Director of the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation Dr Patrick Hone said that the beauty of the Seafood CRC is the incredible diversity of participants, "It's truly national and it covers the whole supply chain. We have the involvement of Australia's premier research industry for seafood – we are all cooperating for a common purpose".
