Research on Aquaculture Species

Science is essential for a sustainable aquaculture industry. Scientific research informs regulatory decision making, explores new technologies and innovative techniques, ensures healthy aquatic animals, and helps to improve aquaculture husbandry practices and open doors for the culturing of new species.

Scientific research is conducted on every species farmed in Canada, as well as aquatic animals and plants that may be cultivated in the future.
