Wales

Marine licensing is only appropriate and required in certain circumstances for aquaculture in Wales. Areas licensed through the 1967 Sea fisheries (shellfish) act – i.e. several/regulating and hybrid order areas – do not necessarily require a marine licence. Some small offshore areas may be able to apply for an exemption to a marine licence through The Marine Licence (exempted Activities) Wales Order 2011

This relates to the use of the ‘land’ not vessels. As mentioned previously – all vessels engaged in the seed catching part of the extensive mussel cultivation are licensed through the provision of conventional (or non-conventional) fishing licences. When they work on site (within the fishery order) as this is effectively ‘private ground’ no licences are required but all vessels must be certified as seaworthy via the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA)
