Aquaculture Policy Comments

The deadline for public comment on a new NOAA Aquaculture Policy ended at midnight on May 28, 2010. All comments received before that date either online, via fax, or hard copy are posted below.

NOAA will now analyze the public input and develop a draft national policy for review and public comment. Once that process is complete, the agency will issue a new NOAA Aquaculture Policy.
