100,000 Oysters Arrive in Wadeye

We recently welcomed the arrival of over 100,000 oyster spat to Wadeye. The baby oysters were deployed out into the floating seapa cages attached to lines, as we trial both subtidal and intertidal farming systems.

The system being set up in Wadeye is different from the other regions who have static systems that are close to the shore. While shore based systems provide easy access for grading and maintenance, they also allow easy access for intruders and unwanted visitors.

The tidal systems being set up around Wadeye, are only accessible by boat and reduce maintenance by using the natural tide and wave activity to reduce bio-fowling.

Congratulations to Aloisha Nganbe and family, and a big thanks to Mark Crocombe and the Thamarrurr Rangers for their help.
