Summary

This report provides a summary of the Australian Barramundi Farmers’ Association (ABFA) Industry Partnership Agreement (IPA) with the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation for the period 2015-2020. The primary objective of the IPA was to coordinate research and development funded through the FRDC, and to support leverage of funds from other sources.
 
Through the IPA, the ABFA committed to a strategic and formalised approach to investing funds. This is particularly important in this industry with a need to generate industry benefit as a whole, across membership from all mainland states and the NT, who utilise a range of production methods (ponds, sea cage, flow through and recirculation systems) in varying salinities (fresh, brackish and salt water).
