Summary: This project was managed by the Marine Fishfarmers Association Inc. of Western Australia (MFA) and established a multidisciplinary Western Australian (WA) research team that designed and ran a comprehensive suite of industry led research projects. The project also developed a model to guide the process of enabling the effective coordination of research effort to deliver commercially realistic outcomes to support the future success of the emerging Yellowtail Kingfish (YTK) aquaculture industry in WA and elsewhere. The project also built additional technical capacity in WA to support the future Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) activities for this industry.
The project identified the gaps between industry input, research outputs and the end commercial use of research and maximised the available expertise and infrastructure for industry benefit. A Research Reference Group (RRG) was formed that comprised the industry participant Indian Ocean Fresh Australia Pty Ltd (IOFA) supported by the MFA, along with scientists from the Australian Centre for Applied Aquaculture Research of South Metropolitan TAFE (ACAAR) and the WA Department of Fisheries Fish Health Group (DOFWA). Other expertise, including from interstate, was sought as required. The RRG, Chaired by a research co-ordinator outlined a suite of comprehensive research assignments to meet the industry’s current needs in developing a sustainable YTK industry in WA. This FRDC project provided coordination of research and industry inputs for a sea cage grow out trial that was conducted at the IOFA site in Geraldton off the WA coast and tank based nutrition research project that was carried out at the ACAAR hatchery in Fremantle. The Project commenced in October 2015 and concluded in October 2016.
