New draft aquaculture standards - have your say

​​​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).

Submissions close 20 May 2022.
