Need

The Australian oyster industry has changed considerably since the last national strategic plan was developed in 2014. Disease outbreaks have devasted some regions through direct & in-directs impacts, new cultivation methods have evolved, there has been a shift to corporatisation, and considerable investment & interest has developed for an emerging tropical rock oyster industry in the north of the country. This changing landscape presents new challenges and opportunities.

With the Covid-19 pandemic set to impact significantly on the Australian oyster industry through reduced sales, the need to refocus and unify behind a national strategic plan has never been greater.

Objectives
