Driving a Fishery along the Bumpy Ride of Today’s Globalization: The Case of the Australian Southern Rock Lobster Association

The case of the Australian Southern Rock Lobster Association describes real issues faced by the Market Development Manager of a collective agri-food organization (SRL) representing all the southern rock lobster fishermen in Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. The case deals with recent globalization issues faced by the Australian rock lobster industry: the rise of China as a vital and risky market of high-end food products; the financial crisis that affected the US starting from 2006 and the rise of sustainability issues that constrained the rock lobster supply. This case is designed for advanced BSc and MSc in agribusiness and international business. It is relevant for both for strategic management and supply chain management courses. In this case, managers, policy-makers and academics find challenging questions that are still open and can be similarly posed to other agribusiness industries worldwide attempting to compete collectively in international markets.
