Shipment of oysters

A digital Oyster Shipment form has replaced the IVR system, and is an approved form of the Oyster Logbook. It enables oyster farms to meet the legislated notification requirements for moving oyster stock and equipment between estuaries. The form will be housed within the DPI Shellfish App which is now live.
