No more water licences: Almond Board calls for moratorium

Prices have surged. Victorian Murray High Reliability Water Shares in Zone 7 – where much of the development has occurred – are now trading at $5250 per megalitre, nearly double the $2650 of two years ago, figures from agricultural consultancy Aither show.

Aither Director Chris Olszak features in AFR article about the Australian Almond Board’s call for a moratorium on new water use licences in the lower Murray region.
