This project aimed to improve the sustainability of a large and well developed, but low technology, ornate spiny lobster grow-out industry in Vietnam, and to address the knowledge gap that is limiting the establishment of a P. ornatus grow-out industry in Australia. With most capture lobster fisheries either fully or more often over-exploited, and in decline, aquaculture appears to be the only long-term way of meeting the insatiable market demand for lobster.
