Australia has responsibility for the fourth largest maritime jurisdiction in the world. The Australian exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and claimable continental shelf is 16 million km2, extending from tropical to Antarctic waters. While the Australian EEZ is not highly productive on a world scale, it nonetheless supports a number of commercially lucrative fisheries, including tuna and bill fish, high-value shellfish and crustaceans, and increasingly important mariculture of salmonids and southern bluefin tuna. Australian fisheries have experienced a period of impressive growth in the recent past, driven by significant developments in aquaculture.
