Aquaculture Licences Appeals Board


The Aquaculture Licences Appeals Board was established on 17 June 1998 under Section 22 of the Fisheries (Amendment) Act, 1997. 

The function of the Board is to provide an independent authority for the determination of appeals against decisions of the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine on aquaculture licence applications. A person aggrieved by a decision of the Minister on an aquaculture licence application, or by the revocation or amendment of an aquaculture licence, may make an appeal within one month of publication (in the case of a decision) or notification (in the case of revocation/amendment).
