NOAA Fisheries released the Guide to Permitting Marine Aquaculture in the United States (2022). This guide was created to assist individuals with navigating the federal permitting process for marine aquaculture for finfish, shellfish, invertebrates, and seaweed. It outlines the key requirements necessary to obtain federal permits to conduct commercial aquaculture activities and provides a high-level overview of the federal statutes and regulations governing aquaculture in the United States.
The guide was prepared by NOAA Fisheries in consultation with the Subcommittee on Aquaculture (SCA) under the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC).
