Starting an Aquaculture Business in Hawaii

If you are interested in starting an aquaculture business, ALSS strongly recommend contacting relevant permitting agency early in the project planning process to begin discussions of the information requirements for the proposed site, production technology and species chosen. Having a general business plan will be helpful. You may also hire professional permitting assistance.

Make an initial determination of which federal, state and country environmental permits and regulatory requirements may be needed to secure a particular site according to its general location; inland, coastal, or in the ocean
