ACCC proposes to allow new levy to combat oyster mortality syndrome

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has issued a draft determination proposing to allow Australian Seafood Industries (ASI) to collect a levy, in conjunction with hatcheries, on the purchase of Pacific oyster spat.

The levy will enable ASI to undertake research into developing spat with resistance to the Pacific Oyster Mortality Syndrome.

More information is available on the authorisation public register.
