The Trouwana/lutruwita Ocean Summit, presented by the Australia Institute Tasmania, will be a deep dive into Tasmania’s amazing ocean and the culture, science, policy and integrated management we need to care for it. A day of collaboration to achieve a closer connection to our ocean, with sustainable production and economic wellbeing for all Tasmanians.

Trouwana/lutruwita/Tasmania is an island state; the ocean and coasts are embedded in our psyche. This connection to the sea is ancient – palawa and pakana people have cared for sea country for over 40,000 years.

Trouwana/lutruwita has some of the highest levels of marine diversity and species found no where else in the world. This is globally significant. Our economic, community and cultural wellbeing depends on these ecosystems remaining healthy. But our marine life is under pressure with depleted fish stocks, threatened species, and poor habitat protection. Pollution and climate change are only exacerbating the problem.

Taking our lead from established frameworks and commitments, the Summit will gather community leaders, researchers, scientists, industry, government and stakeholders to discuss and generate actions on best practice ocean management and what this can look like for Trouwana/lutruwita.

This gathering will host a compelling program of speakers, panel discussions and networking opportunities to lay the foundation for the change required to achieve a sustainable ocean economy with effective protection, sustainable production and equitable prosperity.

The first review of lutruwita’s main marine law, the Living Marine Resource Management Act 1995, is currently underway and provides the best opportunity in a generation to fundamentally improve the way we care for and use our ocean.

The Summit will flow into the first annual Spring Bay Squid Festival, presented by Spring Bay Mill and Artology. Launching with a Feast in the Amphitheatre on Friday night, this uniquely Tasmanian event will be a three-day celebration of the ocean, its most intriguing inhabitant - the marvellous squid, and usher in a new era for the ocean we want.
