Australian oyster farmers invest in the future of their industry. Effective from July 2014, the Australian Oyster industry collectively entered into an Industry Partnership Agreement (IPA) with Fisheries Research & Development Corporation (FRDC). This continues the industry's collective decision making about how it invests. Oysters Australia's member states invest via a strategic plan with goals and investment across the following programs:
Program 1 - Production & Innovation
Program 2 - Risk Management
Program 3 - People & Knowledge
Program 4 - Post Harvest & Market Development
Program 5 - Industry Profile & Regulation
Extension & Adoption activities are fundamental requirements of all projects. Find out more about the Oysters Australia Strategic Plan 2020-2025 here.

Oysters Australia convene an open RD&E technical forum every quarter. This online event provides an opportunity for oyster researchers and innovators to share research outcomes and new developments. This serves to build the capacity and knowledge of those with an interest in oyster research, industry development and extension.
