The Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS). This year’s update confirms the significant contribution our marine industries (collectively referred to as our “Blue Economy”) make to our national economy. In 2015-16 (the most recent available data) the blue economy was worth $68.1 billion. Over the past decade, it has been one of the fastest growing parts of our economy, and as a whole, is larger than our agricultural sector.
