Local Environment Initiatives for Fish Farming

We can assist you in adapting your business to the environment with local initiatives for fish farming involving the surrounding community in our Co-ordinated Local Aquaculture Management Systems (CLAMS)

Our regional Officers will work with you to co-ordinate and manage projects such as:

  • Navigation Plans
  • Deployment of navigation markers
  • Re-alignment and rationalisation of mussel lines
  • Oyster trestle recycling
  • Improvement of mussel training areas
  • Beach and pier clean-ups
  • Schools Projects

Projects vary depending on the type and intensity of aquaculture in the area.

For further information read the CLAMS brochure (pdf 1,771Kb)  or contact your local BIM officer
