Abstract or Summary
  • This paper investigates the integration between freshwater cage culture and irrigated agricultural activity in order to determine the relative benefits and investment requirements of installing small, medium and large scale fish farm operations into traditional farms. Through providing a growing medium for finfish, water can be used for the purpose of aquaculture prior to its customary irrigation use. In doing so extra nutrients in the form of organic metabolic wastes are also capable of being introduced to the farm in the form of fertiliser and contributing to cost reductions. The paper concludes that cage culture integration supplements the traditional gross margins expected from traditional agriculture and that capital payback is less than 5 years.
