Since 1998, Blueshift has worked with a range of industries across Australia and overseas. Over the last decade, Blueshift has increasingly specialised in the emerging blue economy sectors of blue food (fisheries & aquaculture), offshore energy (hydrocarbon & renewables), blue carbon (seagrasses, mangroves, seaweeds & marine sediments as carbon sinks), marine and maritime regulation, biotechnology, tourism, conservation and biodiversity management.

Over the last five years, Blueshift has grown to be one of the most significant consulting organisations operating in the specialist fisheries and aquaculture sectors in Australia. We contribute strong domain expertise and a wide range of national and international experience to this space. 



Blueshift boasts a strong global presence having engaged with clients across key regions including the Middle East, Oceania and South-East Asia.
