NOAA Authorizes Open Ocean Seafood Farming

NOAA Fisheries Aquaculture Authorization
Last week, NOAA Fisheries issued a new rule authorizing the agency to federally permit open ocean aquaculture in the Gulf of Mexico. This rule initiates aquaculture development for species such as red drum, cobia, and almaco jack for an initial period of 10 years. The jurisdiction for this permitting is three nautical miles offshore for Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, and nine nautical miles offshore for Texas and Florida's west coast. Environmental precautions and monitoring are included in the regulations as well as additional permit requirements from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It should be noted that there were thousands of public comments leading up to this rule. For more information, visit the following links:
