The Australian Prawn Farmer’s Association (APFA) was formed in 1993 to represent the interests and foster the development of the Australian prawn farming industry. The Association is a key contact for investors, new farmers and firms wishing to do business with the Australian prawn farming sector.
Industry Partnership Agreement
The FRDC is a key partner for planning and investment in the research, development extension needed to achieve its vision. APFA works closely with the FRDC and research providers to focus resources into the RD&E needed to address current priority investment areas. RD&E investment planning and project realisation is undertaken through a collaborative process between APFA members and research providers, with priorities developed and agreed at Annual General Meetings (AGM) and half yearly conferences.
Research, Development and Extension Plan
APFA has developed a Research, Development and Extension (RD&E) Plan that provides a framework to identify and invest in key strategic research needs of APFA stakeholders. See the plan.
Call for Applications
The FRDC invests through a flexible approach. Part of this approach allows the Research Advisory Committees (RACs), Industry Partnership Agreements (IPAs) and Subprograms to call for applications based on their priorities up to three times per year in November, April and August – to see whether this IPA has put forward any priorities in the current call for applications see – here.
