To promote a sustainable mariculture industry the environmental impact of the individual fish farm must be adjusted to the holding capacity of the site. The present regulation systems seems insufficient in achieving this. We present a new regulation system consisting of two integrated parts; 1) a monitoring program which is adjusted to the degree of exploitation of the site, and 2) a model which simulates the local impact. The system will be helpful in maintaining satisfactory water quality within the fish farms by reducing pollution and be useful in coastal zone management.
