The Tasmanian Salmon Growers Association is excited to announce the appointment of a new
CEO, Sue Grau, who will be a strong voice for a proud Tasmanian seafood industry.
“It’s the passion and dedication of people in the salmon industry and our wider “salmon family”
that will drive me. They have a quiet pride and belief in their work and their product, whether
they are raising fish in a hatchery, building our boats or conducting research. I feel privileged to
learn from them and tell their stories of innovation and sustainability,” said Ms Sue Grau.
“The TSGA Board recognises that a lot of the Tasmanian community shares this belief in our
industry, with a recent study showing the majority support it,” said Mr Phillip Weise the Chair of
“As Australia’s largest fishery, we are important both as a sustainable protein source and as a
role model here in Tasmania, nationally and around the world. We look forward to working as a
solid team with our new CEO,” said Mr Mark Asman, a TSGA director.
“The TSGA is looking forward to working with the Tasmanian Government and all our
stakeholders as we develop a 10 year salmon plan,” said TSGA director Mr Ruben Alvarez.
