ABSTRACT
The author analyzes the condition of the maritime industry amid the economic downturn as of December 2009. He recounts the fall of the leisure sector due to the global financial crisis with the top six or eight leisure boat builders closing in the whole year. He is encouraged with the marine developments in Western Australia and the developments around the coasts of all the other states and the Northern Territory. However, he finds no positive news in the fishing sector and in tourism.
