Aquaculture fees and forms

Aquaculture is an industry managed by several government agencies at all levels of government, including local councils, and state and federal governments.

Starting an aquaculture business may require several different types of approvals, depending on the nature of your operation. The fees and forms outlined in this guide are for aquaculture developments assessed or managed by Fisheries Queensland.

Given the aquaculture industry's complex regulatory environment, we strongly recommend that anyone interested in establishing an aquaculture operation contact Fisheries Queensland on 13 25 23 to discuss their proposal and the approvals required.
