Oyster Farming

"Someone has to be on the water, someone has to be on the farm."

The South Australian oyster industry was established in the late 1980s and is the second largest most valuable sector in terms of farm-gate sales value in South Australia.

There are two types of farms: farms that take spat and keep them/ grow-out to saleable size, and those who take on-grown oysters to fattening size and then sell them.
