Seafarm’s Sea Dragon Project and the  Aborigines

 

If approved, Seafarm’s Sea Dragon Project, a $1 billion shrimp farm, will cover five sites across Western Australian and the Northern Territory, producing 100,000 metric tons of shrimp a year.  Now tensions are emerging between the developers and Aborigines, Australia’s native people who have title to much of the land in northern Australia.  The Aborigines fear they will miss out on their share of the bonanza—and lose title to their land.
