Kimberley Rock Oyster Trial

We have four trial sites at Cone Bay in the Buccaneer Archipelago where rock oyster production trials have been underway for two years.  The trials complement our existing pearling operations in Cone Bay. 

We are also investigating the opportunity to establish an additional tropical rock oyster trial site near the historical pearling town of Broome. We are currently working with key stakeholders including Traditional Owners, government, commercial and recreational fishing community and businesses to identify potential suitable trial sites.
