DNREC announces final regulation
for shellfish aquaculture in the Inland Bays  

DOVER (Aug. 1, 2014) – The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s Division of Fish and Wildlife announced today that the final regulation for shellfish aquaculture in the Inland Bays was published in the Aug. 1, 2014, Delaware Register of Regulations. The shellfish aquaculture regulation will go into effect Monday, Aug. 11, 2014.

With adoption of the final regulation, the Division of Fish and Wildlife will submit a permit application to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, with the permit needed by the Division to issue shellfish aquaculture leases in the Inland Bays. A permit application could not be submitted specifying the location of Shellfish Aquaculture Development Areas (SADAs), allowable aquaculture gear types and other program aspects until the regulation was final.

The final regulation can be viewed at Final Shellfish Aquaculture Regulations.
