Expression of Interest
SRO breeding program spat 

At the request of industry, DPI-Fisheries is producing a hatchery run of QX resistant spat to be made available for purchase. DPI-Fisheries is undertaking this run because hatchery spat supply and demand data indicates that the commercial hatchery network is unlikely to meet the current demand of industry. Recent QX incidents have also triggered increased demand for QX resistant stock.

NSW Farmers' Association is coordinating the distribution of this spat on behalf of industry. This Expression of Interest (EOI) form should be used to register your interest in purchasing spat, however it is not a guarantee of an allocation.

Growers can register through the EOI form until Friday, 17 January 2022. Once the EOI period closes and the final quantities of available spat are known, NSW Farmers will use this information to decide upon appropriate allocations. Growers from QX affected areas will be prioritised first.

Please read all the Frequently Asked Questions to make sure you understand the process and limitations of this run before submitting the form.  For more details on the DPI-Fisheries response please view the NSW Oyster Industry QX Resistant Spat Supply Strategy.
