Storm Bay observing system

Project No: FRDC 2018/131

Where the salmon industry moves into new environments it is important that adequate environmental monitoring is undertaken to understand interactions between salmon farming and the environment. The focus of this project is to follow the expansion of the Tasmanian salmon industry into Storm Bay with a comprehensive environmental monitoring program in support of the ongoing monitoring and management of salmon farming in this area.
