WA lobsters will soon be on their way to India


Live western rock lobster will soon be exported to India following successful negotiations between a West Australian company and an Indian distribution company. 

After its signature in April this year, legislation implementing the Australia-India Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement (ECTA) passed through federal parliament this week, alongside the Australia-United Kingdom Free Trade Agreement (Australia-UK FTA).

Trade minister Don Farrell said the trade agreements would commence “30 days, or another mutually agreed time, after the respective parties have confirmed in writing that they have completed their domestic requirements”.

Once the trade agreement is enacted, the 30-per-cent import tariff on live Australian lobster into India will be removed.

WA’s biggest lobster exporter, The Geraldton Fishermen’s Cooperative, will send a “modest” amount of lobster to high-end restaurants and hotel chains and will work to develop further markets in India.

A 30-per-cent tariff on frozen lobster products and other seafood like fish will be removed over seven years.

It’s welcome news for the lobster industry, which has struggled with prices after losing its main customer China in 2020.
