Proceedings of the Scallop Aquaculture Workshop: Halifax, NS January 24, 2004



The Aquaculture Association of Nova Scotia (AANS) and the Aquaculture Collaborative Research and Development Program (ACRDP) sponsored a scallop aquaculture workshop which was convened in Halifax, Nova Scotia on January 24, 2004. The association was motivated to organize the workshop due to the upcoming 16th International Pectinid Workshop that will be held in Halifax in 2007. The scallop aquaculture workshop was organized to give the scallop growers in the Maritimes and Gulf Regions an opportunity to meet and exchange information on the scallop aquaculture research and culture techniques presently employed. Knowledge was shared through oral presentations given by three active scallop companies from Nova Scotia and one from Québec (that is affiliated with a Nova Scotia company). The manager of a Nova Scotian scallop firm that folded gave a presentation to explain the successes and failures of the company. Also, guest speakers from the Québec, and Newfoundland and Laborador Regions were invited as well as an international speaker from St. Pierre and Miquelon, France. Scallop marketing information was presented by Université Ste.-Anne - Collège de l'Acadie, N.S. personnel. To wrap up the workshop, participant brainstormed and made recommendations for biological, technical and marketing research priorities that would be beneficial to commercial scallop growers.
