Development of novel methods for the assessment of sediment condition and determination of management protocols for sustainable finfish cage aquaculture Operations

Project No: Aquafin CRC project 4.1/ FRDC 2000/164 

The purpose of this project was to develop new environmental monitoring methods for evaluating the level of sediment degradation in association with finfish cage aquaculture in south east Tasmania. Using these methods, the aim was to explore ways of incorporating these techniques into farm management protocols in order to promote sustainable aquaculture production. 

For more information, you can access the two main report outputs from the project here:

  1. Development of novel methods for the assessment of sediment condition and determination of management protocols for sustainable finfish cage aquaculture operations;
  2. Guide to the assessment of sediment condition at marine finfish farms in Tasmania.
