Primary Objectives

Abalone Industry Reinvestment Fund supports projects to increase the productivity of the abalone resource on the east coast. It also supports projects to reduce the long spined sea urchin population on the east coast.

The fund is administered by the AIRF committee which consists of membership from the Tasmanian Abalone Council (TACL), the Tasmanian Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE) with advice provided by the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies from the University of Tasmania.

The AIRF Committee is chaired by Dr Ian Dutton, Director, Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment. For more information on the AIRF committee see below.
