The Australian aquaculture scene is dominated by oyster producers—10,000 MT of Sydney rock oysters are produced annually in New South Wales. The year 1960 can be taken as the starting point of finfish aquaculture. A small trout farm began then as well as a research station to study reproduction in native fish. Commercial-scale trout production commenced in the mid-1960s while native fish are still not reared to market size commercially. The 1970s saw research begin on several freshwater crustaceans with plenty of promise, but as yet there are no signs of a farmed crayfish industry.
