MILKING snails for anti-cancer drugs and harvesting seaweed for food are among the jobs of the future in South Australia.
The state is poised to make millions of dollars from marine discoveries, industry expert Professor Joe Baker says. “The sea is our future,” he said.
“Next decade is going to be the most exciting decade of discovery, of creation of new knowledge, providing challenges to developers and to governments.”
A former director of the Australian Institute of Marine Science in Queensland, Prof Baker is one of the founders of marine biotechnology in Australia.
