Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

My Department does not issue aquaculture licences pursuant to Section 19(A)4 of the Fisheries (Amendment) Act 1997.

Section 19(A)4 of the Act permits an operator who has applied for a renewal of an aquaculture licence to continue operating, subject to the terms and conditions of the original licence held, pending a determination in respect of the licence renewal application in question.
