Aquaculture licensing and approvals

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

The approvals you need will depend on the type, scale and location of your aquaculture project.

Given the aquaculture industry's complex regulatory environment, we strongly recommend you contact Fisheries Queensland on 13 25 23 to discuss your proposed aquaculture activity and the approvals required.
