In consultation with industry, NRET has developed a survey to build a better understanding of the size, value and future needs of the Tasmanian beekeeping industry.
This survey was sent to Tasmanian beekeepers in September 2019. Responses indicated a total value of $9.6 million for bee products, honey, and pollination services for the industry in 2018-19.

In October 2021 a Second Tasmanian Beekeeping Survey was circulated. This survey sought to build on the previous results in 2019 and to gain a greater understanding of the changes and issues facing the industry.
The results of the 2021 survey are being collated and a report prepared for Government and Industry.
