Abstract

The results of this project will contribute to the on-going development and success of inland black bream recreational fisheries and the inland saline aquaculture industry in general. Several commercial black bream fish-out ventures are now operational in inland Western Australia, one of which utilises saline groundwater. It has been proposed that a pilot project to stock the saline pools of the upper Avon River, which is located in the heart of the W.A. Wheatbelt, should be undertaken to provide recreational fishing opportunities for the inhabitants of a number of rural towns. The continued development of the W.A. inland saline aquaculture industry will result in social and economic benefits to rural areas through increased tourism and opportunities for farm diversification.
