Social and Economic Contribution of the Salmon Industry Report

The Tasmanian Salmon industry: a vital social and economic contributor

Report available now

Salmon workers live in, love and support our regions.

The $1.36 billion salmon industry is a significant contributor to the state’s economy and plays a critical role in supporting regional economies throughout Tasmania.

87% of the industry’s economic activity occurs in regional areas, with nine out of ten (89.2%) of our workers in regional Tasmania.

Without the jobs and investment the salmon industry provides, there would be significant impact on small regional communities across the state.

91.3% of salmon industry workers are employed full time, compared with 63.7% Statewide.
