Aquaculture suitability data of the Fitzroy catchment WA, Darwin catchments and Mitchell catchment Qld generated by the Northern Australia Water Resource Assessment


These aquaculture suitability raster datasets (in GeoTIFF format) indicate areas of potential suitability for freshwater and marine aquaculture species in earthen or lined ponds. A multi-criteria analysis, involved the integration of soil data and biophysical characteristics within a GIS spatial analysis environment to predict potential sites to in... more

These aquaculture suitability raster datasets have been generated from a range of inputs and processing steps. Following is an overview. For more information refer to the CSIRO NAWRA published reports and in particular ‘Aquaculture viability. A technical report to the Australian Government from the CSIRO Northern Australia Water Resource Assessment, part of the National Water Infrastructure Development Fund: Water Resource Assessments. CSIRO, Australia.’ 1. Collated existing data. 2. Selection of additional soil and land attribute site data locations. 3. Fieldwork was carried out to collect new attribute data, soil samples for analysis and build an understanding of geomorphology and landscape processes. 4. Database analysis was performed to extract the data to specific selection criteria required for the attributes to be modelled. 5. The R statistical programming environment was used for the attribute computing. Models were built from selected input data and covariate data. 6. Create Digital Soil Mapping (DSM) attribute raster datasets. 7. Aquaculture suitability rules created for DSM attributes. 8. Suitability rules were run to produce limitation subclass datasets. 9. Final suitability data created for aquaculture options. 10. Quality assessment of these aquaculture data was conducted by on-ground and expert (qualitative) examination of outputs.


The Australian Government commissioned CSIRO to complete the Northern Australia Water Resource Assessment (NAWRA) - an initiative of the Australian Government’s White Paper on Developing Northern Australia and the Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper, the government’s plan for stronger farmers and a stronger economy. Aspects of the Assessment were undertaken in conjunction with the Northern Territory Government, the Western Australian Government, and the Queensland Government.
