ASA Comments on Gulf Fishery Aquaculture Rule

first_imgASA has submitted comments to the Federal Register supporting the Fishery Management Plan developed by the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council.“ASA is pleased to see this proposal move forward; we have supported efforts to develop offshore aquaculture in the Gulf for many years,” the comments state. “The promise of building this industry in the United States is unrealized: new jobs along our coasts, working waterfronts, and for soybean farmers, the opportunity to feed sustainably-produced U.S. soybeans to a growing industry here at home.”ASA’s comments raise concerns about both the proposed permitting process as creating permits that are too short in length, at just 10 years, as well as harvest limits that fall below commercial viability. The full text of the comments is available here. The comment period closes on Monday, Oct. 27, and comments may be submitted here.last_img read more
