SAJ-2007-03138 (PGP-DEB)

Published July 14, 2017
Expiration date: 8/14/2017
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) requests re-authorization of Programmatic General Permit (PGP) SAJ-99 to deposit materials for the purpose of marine bivalve and live rock aquaculture in territorial waters of the State of Florida.  This permit would also authorize placement of pilings or other structures used to support navigational marking of aquaculture activities.  The FDACS would administer the PGP for the deposition of materials and other work, by non-FDACS entities, for the purposes of live rock and marine bivalve aquaculture.  Work would occur in territorial waters, to include those navigable waters of the United States which are within the jurisdiction of the State of Florida (i.e., waters between approximately 3 marine leagues offshore and the mean high water line on the Gulf coast, and between approximately 3 geographical miles offshore and the mean high water line on the Atlantic coast).  This PGP would allow for live rock aquaculture devices to be placed within primarily navigable waters near, or inshore.  This PGP would not authorize impacts to aquatic resources, such as submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) or wetlands.  No fill would be authorized in wetlands and only minor fill in navigable waters would occur as a result of the activities.  All activities must comply with the special and general conditions of the PGP.  Due to the minor nature of impacts, and the restrictions on placement of live rock material, no mitigation will be required for the proposed activities.
