Looking for spat? Place an order directly with your preferred hatchery or nursery, and let them know what type and size of spat you need, and when you would like to purchase.


SOCo spat incurs a levy of $0.003 per oyster, across all size classes. Your hatchery or nursery will collect this levy at point of sale. 

Please be aware of current estuary closures before translocating spat. See the NSW DPI Aquaculture Closures website, or contact DPI Fisheries for closure information.
