Aquaculture comp open for entries

Established in 2001, the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW’s (RAS) Sydney Royal Aquaculture competition has been celebrating excellence for just under two decades.

Providing a platform for quality products to be recognised; the competition helps to maintain the highest industry standards, providing invaluable exhibitor feedback and ultimately driving the industry forward.

Focusing on Sydney Rock Oysters and Prawns, the competition aims to help boost these categories ensuring seafood feast like those consumed across the country this Australia Day are the best quality possible.

Sydney Royal Aquaculture Chair of judges, John Susman says the competition provides a unique opportunity for producers to showcase their products.

“Our role at the Sydney Royal Aquaculture competition is to steward excellence by reviewing the quality of seafoods produced and recognising excellence when it is presented,” Mr Susman said.

“As the quality of the exhibits continues to improve the role the RAS has played in providing this stewardship must be recognised.”
