Prawns make their come­back in Sydney event

The Northern Star - Northern New South Wales Rural Weekly - - Top 5 Topics -

AF­TER be­ing rested in 2017 due to the Aus­tralian (Queens­land) out­break of white spot dis­ease, prawns are mak­ing a wel­come re­turn to the Sydney Royal’s Sum­mer Fine Food com­pe­ti­tions.

The 2017 show saw prawns ex­cluded from the judg­ing sched­ule due to the highly con­ta­gious white spot virus, which made its way from over­seas and was de­tected in south-east Queens­land farmed prawns in late 2016.

“We are very pleased to wel­come the prawn sec­tor back to the fold in 2018,” said Sydney Royal Fine Food Com­mit­tee chair Lyn­dey Mi­lan OAM.

“Sydney Royal felt it was re­gret­table but nec­es­sary to sus­pend the prawn cat­e­gories from com­pe­ti­tion in 2017 due to white spot. How­ever upon ad­vice given, prawns will make their re­turn to the Sydney Royal Sum­mer Aqua­cul­ture com­pe­ti­tion.”
