Australia’s fishing industry is ranked fourth most valuable food-based primary industry in 2003-04, producing about 270,000 tonnes of seafood, worth about $2.2 billion. If you get a chance to try some of our seafood, give our Bugs a try. Balmain Bugs (Ibacus peronii) are closely related to rock lobsters. It’s often confused with the other Aussie bug, the Moreton Bay Bugs (Thenus orientalis) which looks very similar to the untrained eye. Both types of bugs have a delightful flavour and we recommend you try it if you’re visiting Australia. Then you can say you ate bugs in Australia.
