An Act Regarding Licensing of Land-based Aquaculture Facilities
Sec. 1. 7 MRSA §1501, sub-§§3 and 4, as enacted by PL 2017, c. 94, §3, are amended to read:
This bill amends the law allowing the Commissioner of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry to refuse to issue a land-based aquaculture license, or revoke an existing license, when the aquaculture activity presents an unreasonable risk to indigenous marine or freshwater life or its environment and specifies that the activity is either alone in the use of a body of water in combination with the aquaculture activity of any other land-based aquaculture operations using the same body of water.
