Summary

Registered fish farm data is updated annually and details verified during site visit by an EC Inspector. Data held include farms and sites designated for notifiable diseases from 1984 to date, species held and development stage, production details, geographical location, water catchment and discharge site, holding facilities and employee type and numbers. Only shellfish and very few fish sites have any relevance to marine environment.
