Guidelines for Streamlining Aquaculture Licensing and Leasing Processes


The General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) prepared a document presenting guidelines for streamlining aquaculture licensing and leasing processes.

The guidelines have been prepared on the basis of a review of information available from Algeria, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, the European Union, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Libya, Malta, Montenegro, Morocco, Spain, Tunisia and Türkiye. 

The publication aims to support Mediterranean and Black Sea countries in streamlining licensing and leasing procedures, in order to facilitate the development of aquaculture by:

• proposing common definitions, concepts, standards and reference documents that contribute to enabling regulatory frameworks;

• supporting coordination among the various bodies responsible for aquaculture-related matters; 

• promoting soft-law mechanisms to simplify administrative procedures for licensing and leasing processes.
