Oysters tops aquaculture industry

OYSTERS have proven to be the food of love for New South Wales seafood fanatics.

According to the NSW Primary Industries Minister Katrina Hodgkinson, the annual aquaculture report card shows oysters have remained the top-performing sector in the NSW aquaculture industry.

Ms Hodgkinson said oysters were the main aquaculture industry in NSW, valued at $42.3 million.

“Aquaculture in NSW is a growing industry supplying adiverse range of high-quality seafood including oysters, prawns, marine and freshwater fish, yabbies and mussels,” Ms Hodgkinson said.

Regatta Steak and Seafood restaurant manager on the Tweed Linda Martin said residents were clearly oyster lovers with the succulent treats flying out of the store on a daily basis.

“We have a takeaway section, a fresh section and an al la carte menu and we sell a lot of oysters,” Ms Martin said.

“They are quite popular and we get them in fresh, which peo-ple like. We get two to three oyster deliveries a week.”
