Cutting paperwork for fish farms

UK - Environmental watchdogs SEPA have brought in an electronic approach to monitoring the seabed under fish farm cages, to ease back on bureaucracy. </b> <br><br> To reduce the &quot;mountain of paperwork&quot; involved in regular seabed monitoring, the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency has developed an electronic template that will enable reports of the surveys, which are usually carried out by a consultant on the fish farmer&#39;s behalf, to be submitted on CD. <br><br> The new system is based on a simple spreadsheet with pages provided which set out details of the reporting requirements. <br><br> In addition to being better for the environment, this approach will allow consultants to easily submit consistent reports to SEPA electronically, leading to faster reporting. <br><br> <i>Source: Shetland Marine News</i>
