Agriculture, Aquaculture, Forestry and Fisheries

Cullinans have represented and advised clients in the agriculture and forestry sectors (including farmers, protected area managers, and agricultural, fire protection and water user associations) for more than 20 years. We have specific expertise in relation to aquaculture and fisheries, and our lawyers drafted the Protocol on Forestry to the SADC Treaty and an online commentary on commercial forestry for Lexis Nexis.

We also advise on: land use and water rights, resisting inappropriate mining on agricultural land, agro-industries (e.g. compost manufacture and mushroom production), fire management and liability, alien invasive species, environmental impact assessment, and compliance with the laws regulating plant husbandry, seed import and export, phytosanitary obligations and genetically modified organisms.
