Abstract

Development of spiny lobster aquaculture is of
increasing interest around the world, as demand
increases and capture fisheries supply decreases.
There have been two primary sectors of research
and development activity: firstly utilizing natural
settlement of lobster seed, and secondly developing
hatchery technology. Ultimately the two sectors will
merge when hatchery technology is fully commercialized
and the price of hatchery-produced seed is
equivalent to that of the natural supply.
This report provides a summary of information
presented at a lobster aquaculture symposium held
in Lombok, Indonesia, from 22–25 April 2014. The
symposium represented the findings of the ACIAR
project SMAR/2008/021: ‘Spiny lobster aquaculture
development in Indonesia, Vietnam and Australia’,
and identified knowledge gaps that require further
research and development. The project had an industry
development focus, and the Symposium provided
an opportunity for input from research scientists,
extension staff, government policy makers and
managers, and lobster fishers and farmers to discuss
industry development and identify key issues that
further research could address to progress the lobster
aquaculture industry’s expansion and improved
productivity and viability.
