Welcome to the NSW Aquaculture Association. This website is designed to aid members and anyone interested in aquaculture, including integrated aquaculture (aquaponics).  Our membership not only includes commercial farmers but also people just starting out seeking professional guidance and support.  Some of which have started at home as a family business and looking to take their operations to a commercial level.  We are here to serve.

The NSWAA is a peak industry body that represents and supports the land-based aquaculture industry in NSW.  Our commitment to the success of our members is evidenced by supporting the aquaculture industry for over 30 years.

Australian commercial aquaculture, is the fastest growing primary industry in Australia, but also home aquaculture for private use is a huge component of our members. Growing fish and yabbies in private farm dams, aquaponics in the backyard or garage and aquarium breeding are all activities that are increasingly popular.

The NSW Aquaculture Association provides, representation, support, information and a platform for communication between all its members that include commercial producers, hobbyists, educators, suppliers, researchers and all those interested in the industry.



Membership is available to all that want to work together towards the betterment of the Australian Aquaculture Industry. Our membership includes not only aquaculturalists and potential farmers, but educators, equipment suppliers, manufacturers, consultants, industry representatives, scientists and those interested in keeping their finger on the pulse of the industry. Membership is not restricted to NSW we have members from all states of Australia and everyone is welcome.
