OYSTER RESOURCES, OYSTER INFORMATION & SUPPLIERS

 
 

Oysters Australia - The home of Australian oysters. Grown in Australia’s secluded inlets and wide open bays, Australian oysters are the ultimate food experience! Meet some of Australia’s growers, learn how oysters are grown and watch how to open your own. Australian oyster growers farm three species of oyster in Australia's coastal waters: Pacific Oyster (Crassostrea gigas sp.) in SA, Tas and some in NSW, Sydney Rock Oyster (Saccostrea glomerata sp.) in NSW, QLD and some in WA, Angasi (flat) Oyster (Ostrea angasi) in small volumes across all states. The Milky Oyster (Sacostrea cucullata) and the Blacklip Oyster (Striostria mytiloides) are also found in small volumes.

 

Sydney Rock Oyster - Photo and information, with link to Oyster Recipes. Sydney Rock Oysters are endemic to Australia, and are found in bays, inlets and sheltered estuaries from Hervey Bay in Queensland to Wingan Inlet in Eastern Victoria. Sydney Rock Oysters are capable of tolerating a wide range of salinities. They are usually found in the intertidal zone to 3 metres below the low water mark....

 

Rock oyster aquaculture
Oyster aquaculture in Queensland is based around production of the rock oyster (Saccostrea glomerata) using aquaculture 'furniture' (e.g. sticks, racks, trays) on tidal land. All oyster production occurs south of Hervey Bay, with most oyster areas in Moreton Bay. The seasonal occurrence of the disease QX in south-eastern Queensland waters restricts the tidal areas where oysters can be viably produced and limits the growing season.

 

NSW Fisheries Application for Oyster Lease
Aquaculture Lease Security information kit for oyster farmers, Oyster lease information kit, application for oyster lease, renewal of oyster lease, sublet of oyster lease, subdivision, surrender and transfer of oyster lease information.

 

Farming the Sydney Rock Oyster
Sydney rock oysters are farmed in estuarine areas and rivers north up to Hervey Bay Queensland, from the Victoria/New South Wales border and at Albany in Western Australia. This Primefact contains information on farming methods, harvesting and marketing, research, and oyster breeding and hatchery production.

 

Mariculture in Australia - Farming Sydney Rock Oysters
The oyster industry in 2007/2008 was worth $41 million, oyster farming has been the most valuable aquaculture industry in New South Wales for over 100 years. Sydney rock oysters make up 94% of edible oyster production in New South Wales, small amounts of Pacific and native flat oysters are also grown. In recent years annual production has stabilized at almost 100 million oysters. Around 75% of all oysters grown in NSW are sold within the State, the remaining oysters are sold in other states. Less than 1% were exported in 2000-01. The industry is the fourth largest aquaculture industry in Australia, behind the bluefin tuna aquaculture industry, the pearl aquaculture industry and the Tasmanian salmon aquaculture industry. Oysters are grown in 41 estuaries of rivers from the NSW Victoria border to the NSW Queensland border except for around the Sydney area. There are 380 oyster aquaculture permit holders that hold between themover 3,000 aquaculture leases, with a total area of about 3,100 hectares of submerged Crown land. The leases are administered by NSW DPI.

Oyster & Molluscs - Virginia Institute of Marine Science's Molluscan Ecology Program
The Molluscan Ecology Program within the Department of Fisheries Science at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) is a dynamic research group that derives its origins from the original oyster biologists at the Virginia Fisheries Laboratory, the organizational ancestor to VIMS. While one of our main focuses is to provide research-based advisory service to the Commonwealth of Virginia for oyster biology, ecology, restoration and fishery management, our interests and research include a wide range of other topics. In the past these have included studies on other benthic and pelagic molluscs found locally in the Chesapeake Bay such as hard clams, squid and whelks, including the invasive rapa whelk. As the oyster aquaculture industry continues to expand we continue to work with local industry members investigating various aspects of water quality and sediment deposition associated with oyster aquaculture, working toward the development of a Best Management Practice (BMP) plan

 

Chesapeake Bay Oyster Information
The eastern oyster is one of the most iconic species in the Chesapeake Bay. For more than a century, oysters have made up one of the region’s most valuable commercial fisheries, and the filter-feeder continues to clean our waters and offer food and habitat to other animals. But over-harvesting, disease and habitat loss have led to a severe drop in oyster populations. Scientists are working to manage harvests, establish sanctuaries, overcome the effects of disease and restore reefs with hatchery-raised seed in an effort to bring back the bivalve.
