I’m looking into the 5.4 problem and was curious if going a more modern “farming” aquaculture solution could work or if it is required to be an older styled aboriginal one still. Economic growth is stronger in farming rather then catching and could possibly help quite a lot more.
There is definitely a desire from Dawul Wuru to have this project be inspired by traditional processes as much as possible. In addition to the potential economic benefits, Dawul Wuru are keen to use traditionally inspired aquaculture as a way for the younger generation of Yirrganydji people to connect with Country and culture, as well as using it as an educational opportunity for future generations. They are also interested in minimising impact on Country as much as possible. Balancing the economic potential, impact on Country and traditional processes will be an important part of your design proposal.
I hope this helps, and good luck with your project!
