Aquaculture of finfish and shellfish is an essential part of the New England marine economy, and is targeted in states' economic development plans to play a greater role in their future. Pierce Atwood has supported the aquaculture industry since its inception, providing the full range of legal services required by start-up and mature companies in a highly regulated, natural resource-based business sector. Our experience includes handling water rights, egg import licensing, real estate purchasing and leasing, permitting, construction, contracts, government advocacy, and more for our aquaculture clients. The firm's familiarity with the aquaculture sector and its many regulatory and business issues provides an essential advantage for players in the highly competitive aquaculture marketplace.
