Learning about the processes and needs of industry and the environment in parallel has been at the heart of our work producing our Cuttlefish Country documentary film. We are very pleased to see that the Conservation Council of South Australia is now providing the public with an opportunity to learn about the intricacies of two special marine activities of great interest to us… aquaculture and dredging. These sessions are free to attend for anyone interested. All that is required is an emailed RSVP to Alex Gaut. We encourage anyone with an interest in the management of our South Australian marine environment to attend.
Wednesday, 22nd August, 5.30 – 6.30 pm
This information session will be presented by PIRSA Aquaculture. They will discuss aquaculture policy, legislation, demystify the jargon of the business and explain away many other aspects of the systems as they operate here in SA. This event affords the general public a great opportunity to learn what it all means and where and how individuals and organisations can influence decisions through the mechanisms of public consultation.
Wednesday, 12th September, 6 – 7 pm
The South Australian EPA (Environment Protection Agency) will be discussing several aspects of dredging including defining their role and providing details about the upcoming review of their dredging guidelines. This presents another great opportunity to learn about how dredging occurs in South Australia and where public consultation fits into individual dredging projects. It is also hoped that a representative from the State’s Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure to provide information about how the Development Assessment Commission is involved in the approval of individual dredging projects but this has yet to be confirmed.
These sessions will be held at:
Conservation Council of SA
Level 1, 157 Franklin St
