Aquaculture Review Board

Favicon.png

The Aquaculture Review Board (ARB) is an independent, Government appointed, Government funded decision making body established under the Provincial Public Inquiries Act and Part V of the Nova Scotia Fisheries and Coastal Resources Act.

As explained on it's website, the ARB has been given the mandate to decide on aquaculture applications in marine areas for new sites, expansions to existing sites and the addition of finfish species to sites not currently approved to produce finfish.

Although it has been established since 2015, the very first finfish application was not heard until November, 2021.  This has created a backlog of adjudicative applications that both industry and government are anxious to clear.
