Entry in the central register of aquaculture facilities and commercial ponds
Every aquaculture facility and commercial pond must be registered and entered in the central register of aquaculture facilities and commercial ponds (CRA). An aquaculture facility is every water surface where the aquaculture production takes place. A written application must be submitted within 30 days after the population of aquatic organisms to enter in the central aquaculture register of facilities and commercial ponds. An application must contain data on:
the aquaculture facility or commercial pond, holder of the activity, holder of water right, water source, type of the aquaculture production, farmed and accompanying types of aquatic organisms, type and size of the facility, purpose of production, accompanying facilities.
CRA is a computer database on the aquaculture for the purpose of conducting controls of implementation of fishing policy measures managed by the Animal Identification and Registration Division at the Administration of the Republic of Slovenia for Food Safety, Veterinary and Plant Protection. It contains data on holders of water rights, holders of activities, data on the aquaculture facility or commercial pond and data on the number and production of aquatic organisms. A holder of the aquaculture facility and commercial pond submits a completed form to the competent authority. It issues him a notification on the entry in the CRA as a confirmation. To enter in the CRA, a contractor of activity must appoint a holder of activity and obtain the water right. After entering in the CRA, every holder of activity receives the G-MID identification number of the aquaculture facility or commercial pond which consists of two-letter designation for the Republic of Slovenia, i.e. SI and nine-digit unrepeatable number. A holder of activity is obliged to submit the data on the number of aquatic organisms in his commercial pond to the CRA once a year by 1 March of the current year. He is also obliged to report all changes related to all CRA data. The data may be reported to CRA via the regular mail or in electronic form.
