支部運営方針

The Asian and Oceanian Chapter is the largest Chapter in the World Oyster Society, a fact which may well reflect both the broad and varied interaction with oysters as well as the degree of interest and sense of importance members feel for the range of issues impacting oyster survival and growth in this region.

A survey of members conducted pre IOS6 showed that ecology and environmental interactions with oysters seemed to be the predominant issues for members. Oyster physiology, nutrition and disease rated somewhat lower.

However it may be the case that some, particularly those in Australia, if surveyed now would have different priorities, with the recent impact of disease in oyster growing regions on the Australian Eastern shorelines and estuaries.

As we know successful aquaculture of oysters whether for food or for environmental reparation or ecological enhancement is multifactorial.

Like all living creatures successful resilient oysters will be the combination of nature and nurture ? survival of the fittest - genetics and inherent physiology, combined with environmental impacts, climate change and climate events, sea currents, nutrients, el nino, la nina, and so on. Disease brings distinct and unique challenges for all including, growers, researchers, environmentalists, and consumers.

It is envisaged therefore that Chapter development will begin with gathering the interests of the current chapter membership, forming a steering committee representative of the diversity within the membership, and identifying priorities, and communication methods for networking and collaboration. The survey used previously will provide a valid baseline “tool” to determine any changes in priorities which will assist the steering committee to set new directions.
