Southern rock lobster (Jasus edwardsii) is considered to offer potential as an aquaculture species.

Tasmanian Aquaculture and Fisheries Institute researchers are working on closing the life cycle under a special Tasmanian Government grant. They have also carried out successful trials at husbanding wild-caught juvenile animals. At April 2002, consideration is being given to allowing a limited commercial capture of puerulus (the stage at which the animals are first recruited to the reef habitat) to be husbanded through to saleable size.
