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 803 aims to provide information on developing novel techniques for Sydney Rock Oyster (SRO) hatchery breeding. These techniques have great potential to increase the reliability of hatchery runs for SRO breeding and commercial multiplication. SRO triploid oysters have a number of benefits for industry and the triploid component in this project was undertaken due to industry expressing interest in accessing triploids.
