What level of salt are we talking about?

Most plants can handle up to about 3ppt salt easily enough, strawberries/peas start struggling there, around 6ppt, other plants start struggling, over that, they'll start dying.

A salt water aquarium is usually around 32-38ppt salt. Unless they are a plant that grows in the ocean, or beach area, they won't survive, vegies aren't going to happen.

Or yea, as colum said and i told the last guy in a thread 2 days ago..... the only plant you will be able to grow in a marine setup is algae (seaweed).

Some odd ideas, me thinks..

You must mean Ocean Crayfish as distinct to yabbies, and then Whiting.. sure sounds like a "Marine Setup"

I have mullet in my salted system.. they seem to be doing OK, but whiting - not sure how they would go in lightly salted AP water
..

I been having success using samphire in a full sea salt system. Some of the seaweeds are edible too you can grow. I have used a species of caulerpa that is sold as 'green caviar' and ulva. The seaweeds you need a shallow pond rather than the grow bed.
