The Aquaculture Project
The Department of Finance in collaboration with the Department of Fisheries and other agencies, industry groups and stakeholders will identify compliance points and regulatory hurdles that are impeding the development of the aquaculture sector in WA, including abalone, prawns, pearling, marron, mussels, marine finfish and other species.
The team will look for opportunities to reduce the regulatory burden by working with stakeholders to make practical recommendations that will have a real impact on business operators, while retaining the necessary protections that ensure Western Australia remains a clean, safe, and disease-free location to develop aquaculture.
The team’s red tape targets include the regulatory approvals process, licencing conditions and exemptions, reporting and monitoring systems and other issues that may arise during consultations. They are inviting the public and interested stakeholders to submit any comments to their Aquaculture Survey
