Permits for commercial marine aquaculture activities


We would like to thank the Alaskan farmers who participated in the development of this portal by providing us with excellent feedback on the materials we developed based on their personal experiences navigating the permitting process and running a successful business. We would also like to thank the farmers and others who provided us with photos to use for this permitting portal, it would not look nearly as good without your generous contributions! They include: Tommaso Shellfish, Alaska Shellfish Farms, Seagrove Kelp Co., Alaska Sea Grant, and Mandy Lindburg with NOAA Fisheries.
