Project No: FRDC 2011/735
This project provides a decision support approach which provides guidance for the identification of the types (and sources) of information that would be needed to support an aquaculture development application in the coastal zone. The project also provides a framework for presentation and analysis of the resultant information such that it can be readily reviewed and assessed by various stakeholders in order to make informed decisions on both site suitability and potential interactions that would allow for optimal site selection. The resultant simple but effective planning and decision support framework provides a functional mechanism for community engagement and communication and should support the development application process and improve planning decisions.
