  • Description:
    "Since the enactment of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) in 1969, there has been increased reliance on confined or on-land facilities for disposal of dredged material. Acquisition, however, is increasingly difficult because of high real estate values, the long-term nature of the easements, and the perception by landowners that dredged material is not aesthetic. The U.S. Corps of Engineers has worked to identify ways in which the landowner can use the acreage for activities that are financially attractive but do not interfere with periodic disposal of dredged material. One of these activities is aquaculture. This report summarizes information on legal and institutional constraints on aquaculture in DMCA. Laws, regulations, and permit requirements that may apply to DMCA aquaculture are outlined; potential legal difficulties are identified and methods of avoiding them are suggested"--National Sea Grant Library publication website.
