Comment Period Reopened: NOAA’s Proposed Rule on Aquaculture in the Gulf of Mexico

The comm


ent period on the NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service proposed rule to open offshore aquaculture in the Gulf of Mexico has been extended until November 28, 2014.

The proposed rule would open federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico to aquaculture, with the objectives of increasing the productivity of Gulf fisheries to help meet growing consumer demand for seafood, reducing U.S. dependence on foreign seafood imports, and sustaining coastal communities and economies.
