Aquaculture Regulatory Toolbox for England

England's aquaculture industry is currently made up of a diverse range of mostly small and medium sized enterprises that are close to local markets.

Farms produce a range of finfish, shellfish and crustaceans in marine, intertidal and freshwater environments. With increasing drivers of food and nutritional security, a growing population and increasing demand for healthy products the English industry must increase production to meet these needs.

The Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) has developed guidance on English Aquaculture regulatory issues which is collated in this single Seafish hosted portal to assist businesses and regulators deal with aquaculture applications. 

As owners of this guidance Cefas have in place annual review and update schedules. Any comments or questions about the Toolbox and its contents should be directed to Cefas.
