    Nationwide permits, or NWPs, are issued at the federal level under the Clean Water Act and Rivers and Harbors Act. Nationwide Permit 48 authorizes commercial shellfish aquaculture activities taking place in waters of the United States, and is meant to provide a streamlined federal permitting process for commercial shellfish operations. In New Jersey, the listing of the red knot under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) has impacted aquaculture operations in the state. This webinar explores some of the remaining challenges to commercial shellfish aquaculture permitting in the wake of NWP 48’s 2017 reissuance and summarize key provisions of the Endangered Species Act and the red knot case study.
