This is a video about how wild-caught lobsters are processed for export and barramundi are farmed in two South Australian businesses. The first part is presented by Andrew Laurie, the owner of Sky Seafoods, who shows the work of the lobster fishermen who supply him and how the lobsters are processed. He describes how sustainability is ensured by government regulation and how the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement will benefit his live export business. The second part is presented by the Managing Director of Robarra, Lance Vater. To the background of scenes in and around the Robarra fish farm, he explains how the immense numbers of eggs produced by female barramundi, the small amount of land required for a bore-fed fish farm, the favourable ratio of feed to growth, and the recycling of nutrient-rich water give barramundi aquaculture the potential to help meet the challenges of feeding the world in 2050. The video lasts 5:01 min.
