Aquaculture licensing is administered through the Aquaculture and Foreshore Management Division of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine. The minister decides on applications made to the division on the approved application form and accompanied by the appropriate fees.
What you need to do
Any person who engages in aquaculture without a licence or who breaches the terms of a licence may be prosecuted through the courts. Any fine imposed by the court may, by Order of the Minister, also require you to remove any structures and/or equipment.
An application form for an aquaculture licence can be downloaded here or received from the Aquaculture Licensing Section.
