The ARC Research Hub for Sustainable Onshore Lobster Aquaculture focuses on two lobster species

Tropical rock lobster

Panulirus ornatus
Tropical Rock Lobsters have a wide geographical range in the Indo-Pacific. The suitability of this fast growing species for aquaculture has been proven by the success of ongrowing wild caught lobsters in south-east Asia.

Supply of seedstock has been a major challenge for establishing a sustainable commercial industry. The tropical rock lobster has been the main focus for commercial research activities.

Bay Lobster

Thenus australiensis
The team commenced research on this fast growing crustacean in 2017. Commonly known as the Moreton Bay Bug, this species has shown strong potential for development as a commercial aquaculture species using the hatchery techniques and technology developed in the research program.
