Review of regulation and policy, guiding use of artificial reefs and Fish Aggregating Devices (FAD) in Australian waters

Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs) and artificial reefs are floating and stationary structures in the ocean that attract fish and are used to enhance fisheries. There are concerns that deployment may have negatively impacted operations of some commercial fisheries. This project aims to identify current regulatory and policy frameworks in all Australian jurisdictions that guide or impact the deployment and use of FADs and artificial reefs, investigate current and projected use of the devices, and develop a best practice guide for the planning, sighting and deployment of the structures.

Impacts of COVID-19 on the Australian Seafood Industry: Extending the assessment to prepare for uncertain futures

In March 2021 the FRDC published an initial rapid assessment of the impacts of COVID-19 on the Australian seafood industry from January - June 2020, that considered direct and indirect effects of disruption to seafood production, supply chains and markets during the initial period of the pandemic, and the availability of data to support rapid assessment. This project aims to produce a more comprehensive follow-up Impact Assessment Report, that will inform the development of a guideline to assess the economic and social effects of large-scale, multi-level risks to fisheries and aquaculture in the future.

Understanding water quality risk for the sustainable and efficient production of Pacific and Sydney Rock Oysters

The Macleay River is a typical oyster farming estuary that experiences a range of water quality issues. For the first time, this project will collect and analyse very detailed water quality information from this estuary that will be used to build predictive models to show the impact of poor water quality events such as flooding, bushfire runoff, acid sulphate runoff, de-oxygenated water, disease, low salinity and sewage spills on estuaries farming Sydney rock and pacific oysters.

Effective control of Listeria on rockmelons through alternative post-harvest treatment methods

This project is determining the optimum postharvest strategies to reduce the risk of listeria contamination of rockmelons. Trials will test the effectiveness of five common sanitisers - chlorine, chlorine dioxide, e-water, peroxyacetic acid and nylate - against listeria. Each sanitisers’ effectiveness will be evaluated against concentration, dwell time, presence of organic material and sanitisation method used (dip/spray/brush).

Digital transformation of the WRL industry to help resolve challenges and leverage opportunities to grow GVP and maintain competitiveness

Fishers in the valuable Western Rock Lobster (WRL) fishery, off the southern coast of Western Australia, face a complex operating environment with multiple layers of compliance, often administered by different entities. This project will research options for resource co-management and improved control of compliance and operational costs; investigate traceability systems to track catch to plate; and increase sustainability through precision fishing backed by robust data analytics platforms, to provide members with greater financial and operational certainty.
