The South Australian Oyster Growers Association Inc (SAOGA) - Authorisation - A91229 & A91230

Summary

On 17 May 2010 the South Australian Oyster Growers Association Inc applied for reauthorisation of an agreement between it and five named oyster hatcheries (which grow juvenile oysters or 'spat').

Under authorisations first granted in 1999, the parties have agreed that the hatcheries shall charge oyster growers (which rear spat to marketable size) in South Australia a levy on spat. The money is used by an association-owned company, the South Australian Oyster Research Council Pty Ltd, for oyster-industry research and development.

On 1 October 2010 the ACCC issued a final determination granting authorisation for a period of 10 years.

A copy of the ACCC's determination is available by following the links below.
