SEAPA’s innovative injection-moulded plastic oyster baskets have changed the nature of Australian oyster farming over the last 20 years, helping grow better quality oysters at lower costs.
The baskets enable farmers to cultivate oysters in a multiple range of farming environments, while ensuring consistent shape and high-quality meat. The advance design of tools and 3D printing are key to testing and refining new equipment.
In 2001, the company began its first exports to North America, and now is recognised as a leader in shellfish technology, exporting to markets including Europe, North Asia and North America. In 2017–18, exports accounted for 75 per cent of sales.
