This study attempted to ascertain the economic viability of aquaculture as an alternative to conventional waste water treatment systems for small municipalities in the Southwestern region of the United States. A multiple water quality objective level cost-effectiveness model was employed. A total of fifteen waste water treatment strategies, eleven with aquaculture systems and four without aquaculture, were examined. Estimates were made of the technical effectiveness and the present value of costs for all strategies. Estimates of the current value of revenues derived from sale of products produced in the aquaculture systems were made, and the impact of such revenues on total costs was analyzed.
