The Northern Territory is blessed with rich land and sea resources and enjoys a consistently robust economy and strong population growth. The Top End is the envy of farmers Australia-wide for its guaranteed wet season rainfall that nourishes premium crops and livestock destined for burgeoning domestic and offshore markets.
The Department of Primary Industry and Fisheries (DPIF) is the government agency responsible for facilitating industry development in these vital economic sectors, ensuring the optimal use of the Territory's fisheries and primary industries resources.
The combined value of our rural and fishing sectors exceeds $540 million a year, accounting for 3.3% of Gross State Product (GSP).
The industries we service impact on the economic and social well-being of thousands of owners, managers, employees, service people and families in urban and rural communities, across all Northern Territory regions and climatic zones.
The department's multi-skilled specialist team of scientists, researchers, technicians, extension officers and support staff are committed to supporting industry with research initiatives, business development programs and production and supply-chain information focused on expanding the productive capacity of the Northern Territory’s primary industry and fishery industries.
