TWIN FALLS - A nationwide survey looking at the impacts of regulations on trout farmers is only about half completed, but that’s enough to indicate regulations are a burden.

One-third of the 88 respondents, to date, ranked regulation as the number one problem facing their farm. When those who listed it as second are included, regulation accounts for 68 percent of the responses.

“That’s much greater than anything else,” said Carole Engle, who was in Twin Falls for the combined annual meetings of the Idaho Aquaculture Association and U.S. Trout Farmers Association. The organizations are among the funders of a study to explore how much time and money is spent by the industry to comply with local, state and federal regulations.
