Some more news:
About Yabbies In WA...
(http://www.austasiaaquaculture.com.au/s ... ectorID=48)

CONCERN OVER POSSIBLE CHANGES TO THE 'YABBY LINE'John Small is president of the Marron Growers Association of WA. He'sconcerned that, if the State's 'yabby line' is reviewed, changes couldresult in devastation of the native freshwater crayfish industry - marrongrowing. Currently native stocks are protected since licences tocommercially produce yabbies are only issued for areas north and east ofthe line. The issue is that yabbies are an introduced species breedingfaster, more often and at a younger age than do the native marron. Theyabbies could take over from the marron, and other native speciesincludingthe gilgie and koonac. There's also the possibility of introducing thedisease thelohania, which is found in species east of the current line,butnot to the west. There is no known treatment for the disease, which killsfreshwater crayfish. Craig Lawrence, principal aquaculture scientist attheDepartment of Fisheries, has confirmed Mr Small's concerns. A DepartmentofFisheries spokesman advises the Department is simply reviewing managementof the yabby farming industry to identify issues which may have emergedsince introduction of the yabby line, with the intent of improving themanagement of yabby farming. Any proposed changes will be made in fullconsultation with industry and other stakeholders.Source: Bart McGann in the Countryman (11/1/2007).

More news, the beauty of ap, no drugs used (from when we have them anyways)
INCREASED DRUG USE ON SALMON FARMS
Ten years ago, in one year the total amount of antibiotics used on salmonand trout farms in Tasmania was 12 kilos. In the first three months ofthis year the amount was 8 tonnes. This is of concern to the TasmanianGovernment - however the industry insists on continued access toantibiotic treatments, mainly to treat marine Aeromonas and salmonricketssia. While treated salmon are retained to allow time for theantibiotics to leave their bodies, there are concerns that wild fishconsuming medicated feed, and escaped salmon, could be a health threat tohumans. There's also the issue that one antibiotic - amoxicillin - is alsoused for human treatment. Its use in the farming industry could effect itsvalue in human treatment.Source: Andrew Darby in the Sydney Morning Herald (23/6/2007).

SEAWEED NEEDED
Australia Bight Aquaculture (ABA), operating at Anxious Bay near Elliston,is considering collecting seaweed to use as feed for juvenile abalone.Currently, Primary Industries and Resources South Australia (PIRSA)regulations prohibit the collection of seaweed, and thus the Elliston District Council is to write to PIRSA, requesting an allowance. ABA has noted that large quantities of floating seaweed collect in the entrance channel to the State-Government-owned boat ramp in the area, and offered to remove it at the company's expense providing ABA can use it. PIRSA hasalready indicated it is positive to the scheme 'in principal'.Source: Port Lincoln Times (24/7/2007).

Sounds like a market for salt water ap to produce seaweed

I have organic veggie customers (potential ones, once I have it up and producing veggies) that are asking for Kelp.

Now I need another swimming pool for salt water. I would be interested in learning about it, but don't think I will be digging any more holes just yet.

INCREASED TESTING OF SEAFOOD IMPORTS
Seafood imported into Australia will now be tested for a range ofantibiotics, including flouroquinolones, quinolenes and penicillins, underadditional measures announced by the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheriesand forestry, Peter McGauran. The decision follows a recent survey ofantibiotic and pesticide residues in imported seafood conducted by theAustralian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS). In a small number ofsamples, the survey detected residues of antibiotics not allowed inAustralian seafood. While the residues detected were at low levels, anddid not represent a food safety issue, the survey showed some importedseafood did not comply with Australia's rigorous standards.Source: Excerpt Media Release - Dept Agriculture Fisheries Forestry(1/8/2007)
