Suppose you live near a coastal area and a company wants to use a fairly large area of coastal marshland for an aquaculture operation. If you were an elected local official, would you support or oppose such a project? Explain. What safeguards or regulations would you impose on the operation?

Before I decide on allowing aquaculture operations, I would want to know its impact on the sea life. If the impact is less compared to the advantages of the aquaculture operations, I would accept the offer. The first inquiry that I would like to make is how save the operations would be. The second inquiry that I would be interested in is to know how much they would be willing to cooperate if the operations become unsafe for the ecosystem. I mean would they give in written that they will stop their operations in such a case. If yes, they are welcome. If no, no to the deal.
