Oyster production Figures for 2013/2014

The annual Aquaculture Production Report 2013/2014 was released by the NSW Department of Primary Industries in February 2015- go to http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fisheries/aquaculture/faqs/aquaculture-product...

I have analysed the section relating to the oyster industry, converted the figures to bags instead of dozens and summarized the results for the last 5 years- see production table below.

The figures show an increase in production in Sydney rock oyster both in Port Stephens and state wide. This increase is countered by a dramatic drop in Pacific oyster production. The...

The NSW Oyster Industry Sustainable Aquaculture Strategy was developed in 2006 to guide the long term development of the NSW oyster industry in a sustainable manner. It aims for a healthy and sustainable industry, and has an aspirational goal of nearly trebling the production of edible oysters from about 2,900 tonnes per year to 7,500 tonnes per year.

The NSW Department of Primary Industry (DPI) has updated the strategy, and has released a draft revised strategy for public exhibition and comment.

The draft strategy sets out priority areas for oyster production, and contains maps of estuaries showing priority...

Oyster Production in NSW and the Oyster Industry Sustainable Aquaculture Strategy

Figures released by the Department of Primary Industries have indicated a significant downward trend in oyster production. The latest figures indicate that production is at its lowest point in over a decade.

In 2006, the government gazetted the NSW Oyster Industry Sustainable Aquaculture Strategy (OISAS). Along with improving the environmental performance of the industry and protecting the waterways from environmental damage from competing users, this Strategy was supposed to provide a framework to increase oyster production. It was hoped that production would increase to about...

Oyster leases can be seen around the Cove and adjacent areas of Port Stephens. Although not all of these leases are as active as they once were, the industry is celebrated annually at the Karuah Oyster and Timber Festival. How did this local industry start?

Oysters had been a valuable food source for coastal Aborigines for millennia. NSW oysters quickly became popular with European settlers and their shells were also used as a source of lime for cement. By the 1860s, increasing population had depleted the natural supplies so the possibility of cultivating oysters was explored. (See NSW DPI:...
