AUSTRALIA - South Australia's Primary Industries Department says it will act to curb aquaculture pollution in Spencer Gulf, but does not support a proposal to identify polluters.

According to ABC News, recreational fishers are proposing that aquaculture operators should have to mark materials such as rope so polluting companies can be identified.

But the state's executive director of aquaculture, Ian Nightingale, says education will be the key to turning around attitudes.
