Recent research using historical records concluded that native oyster reefs were a characteristic feature of substantial areas along the South Australian coastline but were eradicated by the middle of the 20th Century.
The State Government has partnered with The Nature Conservancy, a non-for-profit conservation organisation and international leaders in shellfish restoration, to deliver the Yorke Peninsula Shellfish Reef project, which is the first reef restoration project in South Australia and the largest outside the United States.
Our forum will provide explanation and discussion on the project, its rationale, implementation and the benefits that might be expected. There will be short presentations by The Nature Conservancy and PIRSA Fisheries and Aquaculture followed by expert panel Q&A and then informal discussion over drinks and nibbles.
