Maximising Capacity for Goolwa Cockle (kuti) Harvesting

Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water

A short film about the Goolwa Cockle Harvesting Project and the benefits that the EDP grant has made by allowing for the acquisition of a new barge.

Funded under Round 3 of the Murray–Darling Basin Economic Development Program, the barge delivers significant benefits to business, community, and Ngarrindjeri culture. The project has increased accessibility to kuti (cockle) harvesting areas. It is now easier and safer to move vehicles and equipment between locations. The project has also increased training and employment opportunities for First Nations people.
