Your licence will be classified as a category A, category B, category C or category D licence, depending on the level of regulation required to manage risks associated with the aquaculture activity. Your licence category will be determined with regard to the following:
- the scale and intensity of the farming activity
- discharge of wastewater and treatment of water prior to discharge
- whether the species are native to the area
- the susceptibility of the species to disease.
You will need separate authorisation to move stock into, out of or within South Australia.
You may need separate authorisation in relation to the use of land, building of infrastructure, sourcing of water, clearing of vegetation and environmental impacts of aquaculture activities under your licence.
