Funding for South Coast Shellfish Hatchery
$2.3m has been announced for construction of a new shellfish hatchery on the NSW South Coast.
The state-of-the-art facility will be built by Council on land at Moruya Airport then leased to a commercial operator. It will incorporate a shellfish hatchery, aquaculture training facilities for workers and students, and research and development facilities.
After the hatchery is complete in mid-2020, a second phase of the project is planned to include a tourism facility and an export packing centre to meet overseas demand for shellfish.
