The Agriculture and Fishing industry employs around 36,500 South Australians, which is 4.5% of the State’s workforce.
About 2,500 new jobs are expected to open up over the next five years due to industry growth and replacement of people who will retire.
Future employment opportunities in some areas of the industry are heavily influenced by external factors, such as drought and commodity prices.
Most people in this industry farm sheep or beef cattle, or grow grain or fruit. The Fishing
and Aquaculture workforce is small when compared to the Agriculture workforce.
Most of the jobs are in regional South Australia, particularly in the South East,
Riverland, Port Lincoln and Murray Mallee.
