SEPA have recently released a new draft sector plan for the Aquaculture sector. The draft plan outlines enhanced standards for organic waste and a strengthened approach for licensing medicines. The plan also details strengthened monitoring and assessment processes and a more comprehensive approach to ensuring fish farm operators comply with all these requirements.
A consultation will be run on the draft sector plan until 24th December 2018. To take part in the consultation please visit this site – https://consultation.sepa.org.uk/sector-plan/finfishaquaculture/.
