On the 09/04/18, Oysters Australia held an R&D day to bring together all researchers involved in the Future Oysters CRC-P funded oyster research projects. Project 804 aims to investigate the effects of farm management practices on oyster survival in POMS affected areas in Tasmania and was undertaken in close collaboration with industry to scientifically assess observations and views held by oyster growers about how their farming methods were influencing POMS mortalities.
