The local southern bluefin tuna industry re-signed an agreement with the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC) worth more than AUD 2.5 million that will ensure sustainability for the fishery in the future.

The signing of the five year agreement coincided with the launch of the tuna industry's first website, which went live yesterday.

Australian Southern Bluefin Tuna Industry Association research manager David Ellis said the cooperation between the industry with FRDC was important for the fishery's sustainability.

"We've got a good relationship with FRDC and it's helped us keep sustainable," he said.
