Resolving the biological stock structure of southern ocean crab fisheries

A good understanding of fish stocks is essential to ensure sustainable harvest and reduce risks of overfishing, but this information is lacking for Australian giant crab and giant spider crab fisheries. This project aims to identify key stocks of the crabs and their dispersal pathways across southern Australia, and provide a set of management recommendations that will promote more informed and sustainable fisheries.

On-line measurement of intramuscular fat in hot lamb carcases

An imaging needle using an established medical technology has established a positive proof-of-concept to measure Intra Muscular Fat (IMF) percentage in an un-cut lamb carcase. Intramuscular fat contributes positively to the juiciness and flavour of lamb and is a useful indicator of eating quality. This project will assist in refining the pre-commercial prototype probe under development, validate the precision and accuracy of IMF measurement and release a prototype device to an early-adopter industry partner.

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.

PDS: Feeding Grain on Grass

This project will fund a demonstration site for producers in central west and northern New South Wales, to demonstrate the benefits of using forage and grain feed tests to develop a grain ration to supplement livestock that are grazing forage crops. Supplementary feeding increases liveweight gain and enables improved production efficiency and increased profitability.

PDS: Improved Pasture Management Systems

This project aims to improve the pasture management systems implemented in the upper north of South Australia, by promoting better pasture options that improve the mixed farming enterprise; and demonstrating that an improved understanding of Food On Offer, including feed budgeting and the use of remote sensing pasture assessment tools, will improve overall productivity, profitability and sustainability.

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.

Pasture Monitoring in the Rangelands

The Producer Demonstration Site (PDS) funded by this project aims to demonstrate that routine monitoring and management of key pasture species can boost the productivity of rangelands livestock businesses. The project will engage 5 core producers and 15 observer producers responsible for managing 700,000ha, 140,000 sheep and 2,500 cattle.

Translating intramuscular fat measurement technology to the sheepmeat industry

Intramuscular fat contributes positively to the juiciness and flavour of lamb and is a useful indicator of eating quality. This project will deliver a commercially applicable intramuscular probe to measure intramuscular fat in un-cut lamb carcases. This project will focus on lamb but the device will also be applicable to beef.

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.
