Fisheries Research & Development Corporation (FRDC)

The FRDC disperses a research levy collected from all sectors of primary industry by the Commonwealth Australian Government. A precursor of FRDC first funded an abalone project of Dr Prince’s in 1983 and in 2011 FRDC is still funding abalone research by Dr Prince, having in between also funded research on deepwater fish, sharks, shrimp, dugong and lobsters. The continuing and past support of FRDC is heartily acknowledged here.
