Chapter 7 discusses a range of potential risks to be considered before establishing a greenfield agriculture or aquaculture development. These include the ecological implications of altered flow regimes, a range of biosecurity considerations, off-site impacts from sediments, nutrients and agropollutants, irrigation drainage and quaculture discharge water and irrigation-induced salinity.
