Spring & Summer holds extra importance for the industry this year as we look to recover from the impacts of Covid, and interrupted supply over the last few years. As the weather warms and oyster growth accelerates, it'a a critical period which will hopefully be countered by increased consumer demand & sales. What's in store for the hospitality sector is anyone's guess, but some level of disruption is inevitable.
With this in mind, Oysters Australia and the state peak bodies, are keen to monitor the trajectory of the oyster industry over the Spring & Summer periods. Such insights will provide the information needed should we need to approach governments for assistance, or enact some other supporting activity.
What is proposed is a snapshot survey of oyster farmers, the 1st now at the start of Spring, a 2nd just following Christmas, and a 3rd between Valentines Day & Easter. This survey will be in 2 parts, and should take 10 minutes to complete.
- Part 1 - Ongoing impact of Covid-19
- Part 2 - Data collection for National Oyster Report (ie. market insights)
All data collected is anonymous.
The ability of supporting bodies and agencies to respond to issues is reliant on having access to accurate information. Please spend a few minutes filling in the form to help us to help you.
