Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia. In Adelaide, you can enjoy stylish architecture, boutique shopping, sandy swimming beaches, fabulous arts events, nightlife, fine dining, and some of Australia’s best cafe strips.  Its population is slightly over 1 million, which makes it by far the largest city in the otherwise sparsely populated state. It is also known for having the conveniences of a large city, while at the same time being far less cosmopolitan than the “Big Four”.  Adelaide is centrally located among the wine regions of McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Clare Valley,
all of which are within day-trip distance.


The South Australian aquaculture industry is highly regarded around the world and is leading the way in implementing dedicated aquaculture management legislation.

South Australia has in place good governance and procedures to regulate and facilitate the sustainable development of aquaculture industries. The framework established by the South Australian Government and industry stakeholders ensures ecologically sustainable development while providing certainty and opportunity for industry investment. The industry has taken a cooperative approach to research,  planning, management and environmental monitoring processes that are seeing the industry make significant inroads in international and domestic markets with continued growth expected.
