The Abalone Council Australia's second Strategic RD&E Plan (2018-2023) was released in September 2018. The plan sets out the key RD&E objectives for the Australian abalone industry for the next 5 years. The new Plan coincides with a second Industry Partnership Agreement (IPA) between ACA and the Fisheries Research & Development Corporation (FRDC). The new IPA confers 100% of the abalone RD&E levy to the ACA to manage on behalf of the industry. This doubles the funds available compared to the inaugural ACA IPA thereby significantly increasing the scope to address the many challenges and opportunities that will confront the industry during the next 5 years.
The ACA Board looks forward to working alongside industry, Government and RD&E providers to achieve the strategic objectives outlined in this Plan.
