The Geossy Ltd Sustainable Aquaculture Strategy includes sections on site selection and design of aquaculture facilities, and mapping of potential estuarine culture sites using GIS technology. These maps take into account factors such as proximity to flood heights, acid sulphate soils, and water, and provide a good general guide for investors to narrow the search.
The sustainable aquaculture strategies aim to promote community and industry confidence in the continued development of an environmentally and economically sustainable aquaculture industry.
