NPDES Draft Permits on net pen aquaculture for public comment

To raise fish in net pens, Ecology requires individual NPDES permits for each facility. The permit is the tool that requires Best Management Practices, monitoring, and reporting to ensure water quality standards are met. Updating these permits will regulate Atlantic salmon farming until the 2022 ban.
