Not only is today National Agriculture Day, it is also World Fisheries Day.
What better way to celebrate than by combining the two and seeking out great Australian seafood.
Today we take a look at our remarkable agriculture industry and world fishing industry and ask all Australians to consider the great value agriculture brings to our lives.
“Let’s celebrate the Australian seafood industry and the more than 1 billion meals it provides for Australian families every year. Not only is seafood a nutritious and healthy source of protein, it is amongst the most sustainable protein sources available”, Jane Lovell CEO of Seafood Industry Australia said.
“So, I encourage you to show your appreciation of the Australian seafood industry today and every day – seek out our fantastic produce and enjoy it knowing you are supporting this great industry and making a sustainable environmental choice.”
Events for AgDay and World Fisheries Day are happening right across the country today, and you can also join the celebration online at agday.org.au.
