Update on Prawn Breeding and Fishing – 2023/2024

As we approach the conclusion of 2023, reflecting on yet another rollercoaster of a year marked by various events impacting our environment, we find ourselves still in a holding pattern with our prawn breeding program. The team continues to work behind the scenes with MPI to secure an import license, enabling us to introduce new breeding stock. However, numerous factors and global issues beyond our control persist, hindering this process.
