Video—Rock Lobster Farming Research


In this six-and-a-half-minute video, Professor Stephen Battaglene, Director of the Industrial Transformation Research Hub for Rock Lobster Aquaculture, talks about the pioneering work done at the University of Tasmania’s Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies to develop rock lobster aquaculture.  He says forty individuals, researchers and private companies are working on the project and that the University of Tasmania is now the world’s leading authority on breeding rock lobsters.  The group wants to commercialize its hatchery technology so that rock lobsters can be grown in sea cages or used to restock the ocean.
