Sire Evaluation Link Sires 2022-2025

This project provides strong and robust linkage to all standard sire evaluation sites joining for a 2023, 2024 and 2025 drop. Australian Merino Sire Evaluation Association (AMSEA) will oversee the operation of up to 8 sire evaluation sites around Australia. All sites are operated independently and produce results that are specific to each site (Site Reports using within flock raw data, sire adjusted means and flock breeding values). In order for sires entered at different sites to be directly compared (Merino Superior Sires and MERINOSELECT), link sires need to be used across the sites.

Fit to Lamb Phase 1: Mortality Database

This project is a component of the Sheep Reproduction Strategic Partnership. It is estimated that approximately 6.9 million lamb and 367,500 ewe deaths per year are attributable to dystocia. Gaps in available data mean that current sheep management and selection recommendations related to dystocia are based on limited evidence. Phase one will re-analyse pooled data and will identify known and potential risk factors for different causes of death in lambs, including dystocia. This will inform recommendations for management and selection strategies specific to ewe age, lamb birth type, breed and production environments.

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.

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.
