Consultation Extended - New Draft Aquaculture Standards
Consultation on the development of three new mandatory aquaculture standards to support sustainable aquaculture industries in Tasmania has been extended.
The consultation period has been
extended by four weeks and will now close on
Monday 20 June to allow further time for interested stakeholders to provide feedback.
The Department of Natural Resources and Environment Tasmania invites you to have your say on the development of new draft aquaculture standards related to biosecurity, environmental management and marine farming operations.
The development of these new standards is a part of a continuous improvement process which builds on existing regulatory requirements and current voluntary measures undertaken by industry.
We are asking that you have your say on:
DRAFT Biosecurity Regulations, DRAFT Biosecurity Program and Regulatory Impact Statement
DRAFT Standardised Marine Farming Management Controls; and
Position Paper – Introducing Environmental Standard for Marine Finfish Farming.
The draft standards are designed to enhance finfish farming biosecurity management, improve environmental regulation and ensure state-wide consistency of marine farming management controls across all aquaculture sectors. This work is an action arising from the Sustainable Industry Growth Plan for the Salmon Industry (2017).
