Draft Aquaculture Standards
Submissions have now closed.
Members of the public were invited to have their say on the development of three new aquaculture standards to support sustainable aquaculture industries in Tasmania.
The standards are being developed as part of a continuous improvement process which builds on existing regulatory requirements for our sustainable industry, and voluntary measures undertaken by the industry.
The draft standards are designed to enhance finfish farming biosecurity management, improve consistency around environmental regulation, and to ensure state-wide consistency of marine farming management controls across all aquaculture sectors.
The new proposed standards are an action arising from the Sustainable Industry Growth Plan for the Salmon Industry (2017). The Aquaculture Standards Key Steps Flow Chart
provides you with an overview on what is being progressed by the Department.
