This student project will play a key role in a multi-institutional and multidisciplinary CRC-P research team (Seaweed Solutions for Sustainable Aquaculture) in an applied research context focused on sustainable aquaculture development.
This project aims to determine the optimal environmental conditions at different times of year (e.g. light, nitrogen availability and uptake, water motion, seedling density) for growing juvenile/mature kelp (Order Laminariales) species on lines in the sea. The new knowledge produced will be used to assess the suitability of selected kelp(s) for seaweed aquaculture in southern Australia, and Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture in conjunction with salmon farms in Tasmania.
