TASMANIAN SMART SEAFOOD PARTNERSHIP The Tasmanian Smart Seafood Partnership (TSSP) is a partnership project between NRM South and the Tasmanian Seafood Industry Council (TSIC), which aims to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of Tasmania’s seafood industry practices to conserve and restore marine biodiversity in our waterways. The State-wide project builds on partnerships between the Tasmanian seafood industry, NRM organisations, training organisations, government and regulatory authorities, and community.
The Tasmanian seafood industry is committed to building a future workforce that can adapt to the challenges of harvesting and managing marine resources in a changing environment. To achieve this, the industry recognises that it needs to collaborate with teachers to develop knowledge about the local seafood industry including how it is monitored and managed.
Tasmanian oysters are sensitive to changes in water. This means that for periods of time, oysters are affected by different environmental events such as increased rainfall or higher water temperatures. By building a network of sensors, farmers will have real time information to assist in making decisions for their farming business. And because oysters are ocean sensors, what we learn from them could also assist other parts of the seafood industry. The Oyster Sensor Network Ecuation Resource can be found here
