Applying for Aquatic Farm Operation Permit Amendment

There are two main types of aquatic farm amendments:

  1. a Joint-agency Amendment requires multiple agency reviews, for instance when modifications to an aquatic farm operation are proposed such as an increase or decrease in acreage or significant gear change (size and quantity);
  2. a Single Agency Amendment requires only a Department of Fish and Game review , for instance when an aquatic farm operation proposes adding or removing a species to be cultured or wants to make changes to culture gear, equipment, support facilities, or the aquatic farm operations.

The Aquatic Farm Operations Amendment Matrix below can be used as a guide to identify the various types of proposed changes and the agency requirements and forms that apply to each type of an amendment request for an aquatic farm.
