Aquaculture production systems
Being able to select the most appropriate production system is an important step when establishing or expanding an aquaculture venture.
Some production systems are suitable for marine environments (sea ranching, surface lines, subsurface lines, racks, sea cage culture, land-based marine ponds and tanks and hatcheries), while others are suitable for freshwater environments.
Production systems differ in their set-up and the species they are suitable for.
This guide describes common production systems used in Queensland aquaculture and the most suitable species for cultivation.
