Authorised Aquaculture Production Businesses

Under the Aquatic Animal Health Regulations 2009, all aquaculture production businesses (APBs) must be authorised by DEFA.

APBs will normally include the following:

  • finfish farms
  • shellfish farms
  • crustacean farms

Please see the downloadable document for the Public Register of Authorised Aquaculture Production Businesses.

It is an offence to operate an aquaculture production business without a valid authorisation.
