Research within the Centre for Sustainable Tropical Fisheries and Aquaculture (CSTFA) focuses not only on the aquatic and aquaculture systems that produce food, but also the industries and communities that utilise them. Multidisciplinary collaborations between our researchers provide the synergies to address substantial research problems in a way that individual research groups cannot. CSTFA provides research outputs for sustainable food production to local, state, federal and international resource managers, both in government and in the private sector. Thus, making us a key player in helping secure aquatic food production in the tropics for future generations.
In early 2018 the CSTFA was appointed an official Technology Resource Partner (Australia) for Asian Pacific Economic Co-operation - Policy Partnership on Food Security (APEC PPFS)
APEC PPFS mandate is to strengthen and facilitate public-private cooperation to address food security issues in the Asia Pacific region.
