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.

National Fruit Fly Council Phase 4

This project continues funding for the National Fruit Fly Council (NFFC), which consists of federal and state governments, industry representatives and research funders who strategically coordinate fruit fly management in Australia. Fruit fly is one of the biggest trade barriers for horticulture products. In 2016 the cost to Australia was estimated to be $300 million due to control measures and international trade restrictions.

National Bee Pest Surveillance Program: Transition Program

This project will continue the delivery of a national surveillance program for 13 pests (mites and beetles) and pest bees that could carry parasites or cause damage to honey-bee and pollinator-dependent industries in Australia. It is designed to ensure the early detection of high-priority pest incursions, which provides the best opportunity for successful pest eradication.

Supply chain integrity desirability analysis

This project will explore the supply chains and relationships that exist between Australian processors/exporters and the final retail customer. The research focuses on the proposition that there is a middle market where consumers are still prepared to pay a slightly higher price for enhanced integrity. Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) hypothesizes that such segments exist and technological solutions to providing information and assurances may add value to these mid-tier segments.

Molecular risk assessment of Salmonella in red meat

Salmonella infection (salmonellosis) is a type of gastroenteritis caused by Salmonella bacteria. It remains a significant public health issue in Australia, and foods of animal origin are most frequently considered to be the source of infection in humans. This project will conduct a molecular risk assessment of Salmonella in red meat in order to prepare for potential changes to regulations in the USA that may impact Australian exporters.
