In this article, the author discusses the deterioration of basic education for the seafood industry in Australia. He claims that young aspirants who want to pursue a career in the fishing and aquaculture industry have failed in the most basic educational disciplines needed for the food production industry in the 20th century including reading, writing and arithmetic. He cites the challenges that they confront at the Australia Fishing Academy (AFA), as well as the efforts done by the government of Prime Minister Julia Gillard for the industry.
