A-20.2 - Act respecting commercial aquaculture

Full text
2. The Minister may, in keeping with the principle of sustainable development, establish regional or local aquaculture development frameworks to facilitate the ordered growth of aquaculture in the waters in the domain of the State.
The frameworks shall be developed and revised in consultation with the stakeholders concerned by the use of the waters of the State and their resources and with the regional or local communities.
The frameworks shall indicate, for given geographic sectors, the sites best suited for aquaculture as well as, taking into account, among other things, the aquaculture zoning determined under the Act respecting the conservation and development of wildlife (chapter C‐61.1), the species and varieties of aquatic organisms and the practices and techniques to favour at those sites. The frameworks may also propose the development of infrastructures and services useful to aquaculturists.
