Seafood CRC: setting directions for the Australian Barramundi Farmers Association (ABFA) - development of a strategic RD&E Plan for the Industry.

Project Number:



Australian Barramundi Farmers Association (ABFA)

Principal Investigator:

Chris E. Calogeras

Project Status:


FRDC Expenditure:





This project is critical for the future of the ABFA. As the industry moves to a self funded RD&E model based on industry contributions, the development of an agreed and strategic approach to investing industry funds must be undertaken to achieve the greatest return on investment to industry. This cannot be achieved unless there is an inclusive and wide ranging canvassing of ABFA RD&E needs across the diverse operations within the industry. The ABFA does not have resources within its reserves to carry out this project and as such it relies solely on its residual CRC funds to undertake the project.


1. Development of a whole of industry Strategic RD&E Plan

2. A process for managing, updating and resourcing the Strategic RD&E Plan
