Abstract Purification of wastewater rich in nutrients and organic pollutants is essential for the protection of receiving waters and to enable water reuse. This report investigates the possibilities and constraints of constructed wetlands for treatment of slightly saline wastewater from aquaculture systems. As the body of literature for saline treatment wetlands is relatively small, the reports starts with a summary of processes in freshwater systems. It is then explained that these processes are also present and highly effective in saline treatment wetlands. We conclude with a description of possible vascular plants and macro-algae species for use in saline treatment wetlands. Finally, an assumed case is briefly elaborated.
