Proposals for aquaculture in identified areas of potential aquaculture production will be supported.
Proposals in existing or within potential aquaculture production areas must demonstrate consideration of and compatibility with aquaculture production. Where compatibility is not possible, proposals must demonstrate that they will, in order of preference:
c) mitigate significant adverse impacts on aquaculture
d) if it is not possible to mitigate significant adverse impacts, proposals should state the case for proceeding.
