Tender Details

The NSW Marine Estate Management Strategy (MEMS) identified 9 initiatives that will be implemented over the next 10 years to protect and improve the NSW marine estate.

Oyster reef restoration has been identified as a high priority activity within Initiative 1of the MEMS due to this habitats type’s ability to improve water quality, boost biodiversity, and increase fisheries production. It is worth noting that oyster reef restoration is an emerging industry in Australia that has not been extensively implemented in NSW with only small scale on-ground works conducted to date.

This project will be the first of its kind for NSW. Services sought with this tender include:

1. Coordination of transport, and stockpiling of locally quarried rock (sourced in the Port Stephens area).

2. Loading and barge transport of rock and oyster shell from a land base facility to reef restoration sites.

3. Placement of rock and shell to design specification within the intertidal zone at two remote locations within the Port Stephens estuary.
