Salmon grown in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia originate from Saint John River wild salmon. However, through careful selective breeding programs like the Atlantic Salmon Broodstock Development Program, the offspring from this superior stock were supplied to our salmon farming industry allowing us to produce the highest quality salmon in the most economical and environmentally sound manner possible.
Canada’s seafood farmers and the Canadian Aquaculture Industry Alliance today supported the unanimous recommendations by the Senate Standing Committee of Fisheries and Oceans including the call for a new national Aquaculture Act, the first federal act of its kind in Canada.
Canada's new Aquaculture Activities Regulation marks an important step forward in the continued responsible growth of our region's salmon farming industry, says the Atlantic Canada Fish Farmers Association.
The Atlantic Canada Fish Farmers Association, which represents salmon farming and its supply and service sector in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, is seeking an experienced professional Executive Director to represent its interests and manage its ongoing operations.
