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 807 aims to provide information on ways to increase Native and Rock Oyster production and profitability. This includes optimized grow out techniques that will result in healthy and better growing oysters, translocation protocols and develop methods to increase the shelf life of these oysters.
