Science advice from Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat (CSAS)

The Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat (CSAS) coordinates the peer review of scientific issues for Fisheries and Oceans, and communicates the results of scientific review and advisory processes. The peer review of aquaculture research informs the scientific advice for finfish cage aquaculture and shellfish aquaculture in the marine environment.

The CSAS process is designed to ensure that regulatory and management decisions are being made based on the best available science knowledge.
