Abstract

This report describes the results of a 15 month water quality and algal sampling study of the Russell River conducted for the Huon Aquaculture Company (HAC) by Peter Davies of Freshwater Systems and Dom O’Brien of Aquaculture, Management & Development P/L.
Its primary aim was to:
- describe conditions in the river;
- to assess the relationships between nutrient levels and algal levels in the Russell;
- to assess the degree of influence of the HAC facility on the algal levels;
- to identify any thresholds in algal and nutrient levels which may be used in management to improve the environmental outcomes in the river; and
- to assess any relationships between nutrient levels and feed or stocking rates in the HAC farm.
