Trial OzFish Reef in Port RiverFebruary 1, 2023
OzFish in 2022 began deploying Robust Oysters Baskets (ROB) in the inner harbour of the Port River.
In early January 2023 ECF supplied mature native oysters onto that trial ROB reef, as broodstock.
In April monitoring begun by University of Adelaide students on what’s growing on and in those Robust Oyster Baskets.
While the results are still to come, it looks promising with baby native oysters found on the ROBs and mature oysters nearby.
ECF is looking forward to the continuation of efforts to restore native oysters through larger trials by OzFish.
