Organisation:

South Australian Research and Development Institute

Principal Investigator:

Owen Burnell

Project Status:

Current

FRDC Expenditure:

$114,226.00

Program(s):

Industry

Objectives

1. Quantify rates of survival and growth of greenlip abalone at sea ranches in South Australia;

2. Quantify the influence of abiotic (i.e. tide, swell, temperature) and biotic (i.e. feed availability, predator activity) conditions on survival and growth of greenlip abalone at sea ranches in South Australia;

3. Monitor the prevalence of the Perkinsus infection in greenlip abalone at sea ranches and in nearby wild populations

4. Determine the reproductive state of greenlip abalone from sea ranches;

5. Compare and contrast the survival and growth of greenlip abalone from sea ranches in South Australia with those from replicated studies in Western Australia.
