Eyre Peninsula Desalination Project

In reply to the Hon. C. BONAROS ().9 March 2023).

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries): I am advised:

Yes, SARDI's research and modelling work involved consultation with the aquaculture and fishing industries.

Initial consultation was undertaken through the SA Water-led stakeholder engagement process which included SARDI participation at SA Water Industry Reference Group meetings and the SA Water Stakeholder Risk Assessment Workshop.

Following this, consultation with Industry was undertaken through the site selection committee and independent Marine Science Review Panel established by SA Water.
