Potential Environmental Impacts From Farming Rainbow Trout Using Inland Saline Water in Western Australia

Mark R. Starcevich, Alan J. Lymbery, Robert G. Doupé
2003 Australasian Journal of Environmental Management  
S econdary salinisation, caused by rising water tables as a result of land clearing, has led to large areas of unproductive agricultural land in Australia.  ...  The regulation of environmental impacts in inland saline aquaculture is complicated by the diversity of government agencies involved and by the small scale of the industry.  ...  Acknowledgements Financial support for this study was provided by the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation . of Australia.  ...
