Identifying new resistance genes for Panama Tropical Race 4

This project will identify new genetic material associated with resistance to the banana disease Panama Tropical Race 4, with the aim of developing a range of molecular markers. These will be used to screen germplasm in international breeding programs to identify lines and varieties that will ultimately be used by Australian banana growers.

Development of a guideline to investigate and understand disease outbreaks of unknown cause

Aquaculture in Australia is growing at around 6% per annum, but new and emerging diseases are a substantial threat to aquatic animal production and aquatic environments, especially as they can affect both wild and farmed populations. It can be challenging to prioritise the need to learn about a new disease and the need to contain or eradicate it, but general principles and approaches apply, and this project is developing a guideline to understand disease outbreaks of unknown cause.

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.

Maintaining cultural practices and building knowledge and capacity to support sustainable fishing of the Gynburra on Narungga Sea Country

This study by Narungga people of the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia sought to improve understanding of the fishery biology and ecology of the culturally significant Gynburra species, also known as Butterfish or Strongfish. The project aims to build the Narungga people's capacity and knowledge to support sustainable fishing of the Gynburra on Narungga Sea Country and extend the findings to the broader community.

An investigation of recreational fishing peak bodies in Western Australia, Victoria and Northern Territory to identify insights into models of success

The Tasmanian Association for Recreational Fishing Inc. (TARFish) has identified that its current operating model is not sustainable. Through this project TARfish will investigate three successful models of recreational fishing peak bodies - RecFishWest (Western Australia), VRFish (Victoria) and Amateur Fisherman's Association of the Nothern Territory (Northern Territory) - to learn about success factors, risks, and the pathways for future growth planned by each group that will ensure its own survival.

Demonstrating the benefits of building capability and capacity in extension delivery in the vegetable industry

This project focuses on identifying what support extension officers require to help them develop the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to deliver effective extension to vegetable growers. It will also identify which avenues and networks vegetable growers prefer to use to gain knowledge and skills.

Designing the integration of extension into research projects: Tangible pathways to enhance adoption and impact

Researchers are experts in their field, but are not necessarily skilled in encouraging producers and growers to adopt their findings. This project seeks to best understand how to ensure that an adoption pathway is incorporated into the design and delivery of research projects. As a key outcome, researchers and extension officers will be actively engaged in the design of a theory of change to inform the pathways to adoption and impact.
