For coastal fish farm waste, dilution is not an automatic solution, Stanford researchers say

Aquaculture is a booming industry, but that means effluent from fish farms will be booming, too. What happens to that drifting waste in coastal settings is critical to maintaining a healthy environment, but little has been known about how that waste travels once it is no longer down on the farm. Stanford researchers have developed a highly detailed computer simulation that will help find suitable sites for aquaculture and help monitor any plumes of waste wafting through the waters.
