ACIAR cosponsored a workshop in Perth, Western Australia in August 1997. In Australia there is a high level of interest in using its huge inland saline water reserves, which have contributed to loss of farm productivity but which have potential for inland aquaculture. The workshop highlighted a number of exploratory projects in the planning stages or in progress around Australia. For ACIAR it raised the possibility of research collaboration with developing countries that share similar salinity problems and have potential for inland aquaculture.
