Coastal marine and estuarine waters provide the basis for most of the marine farming in Tasmania. The industry is concentrated mainly in the south-east of Tasmania because of the cooler waters, range of sheltered inlets and proximity to infrastructure such as markets, transport services and airports. Recently, land-based farming using pumped seawater has been developed and technical improvements, particularly in abalone husbandry, should see this increase.
