How we manage aquaculture
We work with our partners to support a healthy ecosystem, and to achieve economic benefits for coastal communities.Learn more
Initiatives and management measures
We’re working on new management approaches to increase transparency in decision-making, and collaboration with Indigenous peoples and other partners.
Have your say
We’re developing a new Aquaculture Act and streamlining existing rules that govern aquaculture across Canada to ensure a single set of rules for all operations.Learn more
Science and research
Aquaculture science is the cornerstone of all of our management decisions for regulating aquaculture in an environmentally responsible way. Science allows us to understand ecosystem interactions and fish health.
Fisheries and Aquaculture Clean Technology Adoption Program
We support the aquaculture industry’s adoption of the latest and greenest technology available by funding market-ready solutions into day-to-day operations through the $20 million Fisheries and Aquaculture Clean Technology Adoption Program.
Study on the state of salmon aquaculture technology
To make sure we always use the latest and best aquaculture production practices, we launched a study with the province of British Columbia on the global state of salmon aquaculture technology. It will look at a wide range of current and emerging technologies that can reduce interactions between fish farms and the environment, including impacts on wild salmon.
