Your legal obligation
The Aquatic Animal Health (Scotland) Regulations 2009 allows for a derogation that requires the registration of an Aquaculture Production Business that is operating non-commercial installations (NCBs).
NCBs are defined as businesses in which aquatic animals are kept with no intention of placing them on the market, and include:
· wild fish hatcheries not involved in moving aquatic animals out of the catchment
· universities and research establishments not moving animals off site
· installations holding aquatic animals with direct contact to natural waters, not involved in placing on the market
