The story of edible oysters

Kerrie from the Hastings Point Field Studies Centre and the team at Ocean Watch Australia have just completed a new project ‘From Plankton to Plate’, the story of edible oysters which is a learning resource for Year 6 and 7 students supported by Ocean Watch Australia and NSW Farmers Association through funding from the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country.

Ocean Watch Australia is a national environmental, not-for-profit company that works to advance sustainability in the Australian seafood industry through protecting and enhancing fish habitats, improving water quality and advancing the sustainability of fisheries through action based partnerships with the Australian seafood industry, Government, natural resource managers, private enterprise and the community.

This resource is designed for Years 6 and 7 with links to the Australian Curriculum. The focus is on land and water management and waste management issues in a coastal environment and how these affect the NSW oyster industry.
