A deep dive into Canada’s aquaculture future

Speaking at a recent webinar organised by Seafood Source, Tim Kennedy from the Canadian Aquaculture Industry Alliance gave listeners an insider’s perspective on what Canada’s recent elections mean for its emerging aquaculture industry. In his view, aquaculture can play an instrumental role in economic development and environmental protection initiatives.

In order to do this, the government needs to create a modern and fit-for-purpose Aquaculture Act that reflects the industry’s growth potential. The act should also provide a blueprint for regulators and producers to manage the sector’s long-term objectives.
