Brunei is a small country, and the agricultural business is not high. Although the country attempted to increase agricultural production, there was a lack of working class. While livestock agriculture is not popular in the country, Brunei has widespread practices of farming aquatic animals. No legislation on farm animal protection in Brunei was found at the moment of writing.
There is the Wildlife Protection Act that covers general provisions for protecting wildlife, wildlife sanctuaries, and procedural regulations. The Act prohibits shooting, hunting, killing, capturing, or taking any animal, bird, fish, or reptile; taking or disturbing the nest or eggs of any bird; keeping or carrying any weapon or contrivance of any kind used for the taking, shooting, or killing of any animal, bird, fish, or reptile; possessing a trophy or flesh of any mammal, bird, fish, or reptile; etc. (Section 4(2)) Violations of such provisions are punished by a fine of $2000, $1000, or imprisonment for 6 months, depending on the type of the violation. (Section 4(3); Section 4(4))
Brunei has protected animals nationwide. The Act prohibits hunting, killing, or capturing such protected animals unless a person has a special permit. Non-compliance with these provisions results in imprisonment for 1 year and a fine of $2000. (Section 7) Those persons without a license are not allowed to sell, offer for sale, or possess any protected animal, trophy, or flesh of this animal. Violating this provision is punished by imprisonment for 6 months and a fine of $1000. (Section 8)
The Fisheries Act was enacted to protect and manage the marine biodiversity of Brunei. Fish, in accordance, with the Act, means “any of the varieties of marine, brackfish water or freshwater fishes, crustacea, aquatic mollusca, marine sponges, trepang, and other aquatic life, but does not include turtle or their eggs.” The authorized body can make regulations with regard to such activities as prohibiting any method of fishing, the use of traps or fishing nets; prescribing minimum weights and sizes of captured fish; etc. (Section 5)
