Summary

Yellowtail Kingfish is an emerging aquaculture species, and there is an increase in the demand for the fish, both for recreational fishing and for export purposes. This has led to the growth of the aquaculture industry that specialises in culture of yellowtail kingfish in South Australia. Currently very little is known about the physiological properties of yellowtail kingfish, and most data that has been generated on the fish has primarily been in Japan, where most of the scientific articles are written in Japanese.

There is currently very limited supply of microalgae in Australia for use in commercial applications, and development is underway to encourage growth of the microalgae industry with a specific focus on developing a biorefinery system. One of the main aspects of the biorefinery system will be to use waste generated by the production of biofuels in other industries which will provide value addition to the waste products from the production of biodiesel.
