The Scottish Government response to the recommendations of the Independent Review of Scottish Aquaculture Consenting

Executive Summary

The Independent Review of Scottish Aquaculture Consenting made a number of recommendations to improve the aquaculture consenting regime in Scotland. The recommendations fall into two main categories: eight quick wins and five longer-term options. This document reports the view of the CWG to those recommendations and Scottish Ministers’ consideration of these.

The response reflects Scottish Government support of the sustainable growth of the aquaculture industry with due regard to the wider environment and aspirations for high performing planning and licensing systems.
