2013 Trans-Tasman Conference



Four Points by Sheraton, Sydney
1 September – 3rd September 2013


On behalf of the New South Wales rock lobster industry we welcome delegates and invited guests to Sydney in September 2013 for another informative and sociable Trans-Tasman lobster industry conference and workshop.

The principal sponsors for the event were the Australian Fisheries Research and Development Corporation – FRDC – and the NSW Department of Primary Industries.

We built on the success of the 2011 event in New Zealand and picked up the theme of our industries meeting new challenges with confidence – adapting to changing political priorities and preferences for access and use of marine resources generally and interacting with the professionals who can guide and inform industry responses to challenges and to opportunities.

The 2013 conference sessions were balanced across fishing, science, post-harvest and technology

The event organisation was shared between the NSW Lobster Industry Association and the NZ Rock Lobster Industry Council and we are indebted to all sponsors for their support.
