Do you like Oysters? Do you know why are they important? Oysters are part of our heritage and have been an important natural resource for Australia’s First Nations for tens of thousands of years. However, most natural oyster reefs around Australia have disappeared, which is important as they provide structure and habitat for marine biodiversity. Oysters remain an important part of Australian culture and cuisine, with oyster farming occurring in most of NSW estuaries, supporting coastal economies.

Join the Marine Studies Institute for their first multidisciplinary event, partnered with the Sydney Environment Institute and Spanish Researchers in Australia Pacific, to learn about these fascinating creatures where you are invited to listen to different perspectives on oysters from researchers, farmers, chefs and Australia’s First Nations. The event will include an afternoon of discussions followed by an online BYO oyster tasting. Details will be provided once you are registered.
