Article
Full-text available
In this study, we develop a dynamic Inverse Almost Ideal Demand System model to derive own- and cross-price flexibilities for wild-caught fish, Australian farmed salmon and imports of fresh and frozen fish. We find that the growth of fresh fish imports and Australian farmed salmon production have both individually had a significant negative impact...
Article
Assessing seafood supply chains is important at both individual business and industry levels to ensure profitability, efficiency, and consumer satisfaction. Such assessments are typically aimed at understanding the structure of the supply network and at optimizing processes within the chain. Yet, identifying broader supply chain challenges (e.g., a...
Article
The Southern and Eastern Scalefish and Shark Fishery (SESSF) is the main domestic supplier of fresh wild-caught fish to the Sydney and Melbourne markets. The fishery is managed through a series of total allowable catches (TACs) for key species, with an objective of achieving maximum economic yield (MEY) with biomass and fishing mortality at MEY as...
Article
Full-text available
Increased focus towards food safety and quality is reshaping food purchasing decisions around the world. Although some food attributes are visible, many of the attributes that consumers seek and are willing to pay a price premium for are not. Consequently, consumers rely on trusted cues and information to help them verify the food quality and crede...
Article
Australia has experienced a significant increase in seafood imports over the past two decades. Concurrently, Australian seafood producers have raised concerns that the low market prices of imported fish may negatively affect the prices of domestically produced seafood and, subsequently, the profitability of the Australian fishing industries. To val...
Article
The processing/wholesale supply chain model has been historically adopted by farmers of Australia's Sydney rock oyster (SRO) (Saccostrea glomerata) industry to transfer their product to consumers. The model has been criticized for restricting farmer's price bargaining power and for offering limited added value to the product. Recent anecdotal repor...
Article
The purpose of this study is to develop a supply chain assessment framework that can be used to describe and analyse agri-food supply chains at an industry level in a systematic manner. This will facilitate comparison and classification between different supply chains. The framework is developed based on a literature review and is demonstrated with...
Article
The horticulture sector in Queensland, Australia, is highly diverse, producing tropical fruits, citrus, vegetables and nuts. However, domestic demand for many horticulture products is saturated in peak seasons, leading to a low farmgate price. Therefore, the export of high-value horticulture products to Asia may offer producers market diversificati...
Article
Since ports generate a range of negative externalities it is becoming increasingly important for them to engage with their stakeholders effectively through a corporate sustainability strategy which seeks to obtain stakeholder legitimacy for port operations. Yet, the link between a sustainability strategy and the accomplishment of business goals is...
Article
Due to their reliance on renewable and natural resources, climate change affects fisheries and aquaculture industries. The aim of this study was to develop a framework to quantify the potential economic impact of climate change on an industry and analyze the impact of market dynamics on its economic viability under changing climate. To achieve this...
Article
Full-text available
Coastal resources are coming under increasing pressure from competition between recreational, commercial and conservation uses. This is particularly so in coastal areas adjacent to major population centres. Given high recreational and conservation values in such areas, economic activities need to be highly efficient in order to persist. Management...
Article
Full-text available
Socio-economic characteristics such as age, gender, educational attainment, employment status, and income contain vital information about how an industry may respond to changing circumstances, and hence are of importance to decision makers. While some socio-economic studies exist, relatively little attention has been given to fishery and aquacultur...
Article
Full-text available
The Sydney rock oyster (Saccostrea glomerata) (SRO) is an oyster species that only occurs in estuaries along Australia’s east coast. The SRO industry evolved from commercial gathering of oyster in the 1790s to a high production volume aquaculture industry in the 1970s. However, since the late 1970s the SRO industry has experienced a significant and...
Chapter
Full-text available
Climate change is impacting the oceans around Australia with significant warming of ocean temperatures, observed on both the east and west coasts. The response of wild fisheries and aquaculture sectors to climate change is an area of active investigation; however, the species and environment have received most attention. Supply chains are represent...
Article
Full-text available
Economic competition between introduced and native aquaculture species is of interest for industry stakeholders since increased production can affect price formation if both aquaculture species are part of the same market or even substitutes. In this study, we focus on the Australian edible oyster industry, which is dominated by two major species—t...
Article
Full-text available
A theoretical basis is required for comparing key features and critical elements in wild fisheries and aquaculture supply chains under a changing climate. Here we develop a new quantitative metric that is analogous to indices used to analyse food-webs and identify key species. The Supply Chain Index (SCI) identifies critical elements as those eleme...
Article
Large scale forest plantations in the Murray–Darling Basin are a possible carbon sequestration mechanism which may be adopted in response to the introduction of a carbon price. However, increased tree plantation will be associated with reduced inflows to river systems because of increased transpiration, interception and evaporation. This could have...
Article
Full-text available
People are part of a complex natural system and have the ability to actively interfere with their environment. Collective decisions made by governments represent social rules that limit the extent of people"s interference with the environment that support them. Environmental decisions made by governments usually carry an ethical bias and are limite...
Article
Climate change is likely to have substantial effects on irrigated agriculture. Extreme climate events, such as droughts, are likely to become more common. These patterns are evident in median projections of climate change for the Murray–Darling Basin in Australia. Understanding climate change effects on returns from irrigation involves explicit rep...
Article
Full-text available
Large scale forest plantations in the Murray-Darling Basin may be embraced as a carbon sequestration mechanism under a Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme. However, increased tree plantation will be associated with reduced inflows to river systems because of increased transpiration, interception and evaporation. Therefore, an unregulated change in la...
Article
Full-text available
Climate change is likely to have substantial effects on irrigated agriculture. It is anticipated that many areas that are already dry will become drier, while areas that already receive high rainfall may experience further increases. Extreme climate events such as droughts are likely to become more common. These patterns are evident in projections...
Article
Full-text available
The Murray-Darling Basin faces increasing pressure on water quantity and quality. In 2006-07, salt interception schemes implemented as part of the Murray–Darling Basin Salinity Management strategy removed over 470,000 tonnes of salt from the water supply, reducing the salinity of water flowing to Adelaide by about 200 EC units. However, the costs...
Article
Full-text available
The Murray-Darling Basin (MDB) covers over 1 million km2 and is located in four states in eastern Australia and the Australian Capital Territory. The MDB produces over 40% of Australia’s total gross value of agricultural production, has over three quarters of the total irrigated land in Australia, utilises 70% of Australia’s irrigation water and su...
