Eureka moment for Oyster reefs

Posted on: Fri 27 Nov 2020

Shellfish reefs, once common across the temperate bays and estuaries of southern Australia, have been over exploited to near extinction.

This week, South Australian marine ecologists Dr Dominic McAfee and Dr Heidi Alleway, were among a team of scientists awarded a Eureka Prize – the country’s most comprehensive national science awards – for their research towards rebuilding Australia’s lost shellfish reefs.

Dr Dominic McAfee from the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Adelaide, speaks with Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to discuss the research.
