Abstract

This Regulation lays down detailed rules implementing the conditions necessary for adding species to Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No. 708/2007, which sets out a framework governing aquaculture practices in relation to alien and locally absent species to assess and minimize the possible impact of these and any associated non-target species on aquatic habitats. In particular, these provisions deal with the development of a specific information system concerning the permits for the introduction and translocation of alien and locally absent species in aquaculture.
