The South Australian Rock Lobster Advisory Council Inc. (SARLAC)

is the peak representative body for the commercial Southern Rock Lobster industry in South Australia.  

Established in 2002, SARLAC’s valued membership-base encompasses licence holders from both the South Australian Southern and Northern Zone Commercial Rock Lobster Fisheries.

SARLAC exists solely to promote the interests of the South Australian Rock Lobster Industry, and is governed by a Board comprising of industry leaders from each Zone together with an independent Chairperson. The SARLAC Board is supported by an Executive Officer.

SARLAC prides itself on a totally professional approach to representation of the rock lobster industry at the highest levels - this is facilitated through good governance procedures of the highest order.

The Southern Rock Lobster Industry is South Australia’s most valuable commercial wild-caught fishery, generating up to $280 million worth of economic activity for the State each year, with much of that supporting regional coastal communities and economies in the South East and Limestone Coast Region, in Port Lincoln and on the West Coast, Yorke Peninsula and Kangaroo Island.
