There is cause for excitement because of the opportunity this industry represents for our Province, especially as a means to support rural economic renewal.
There are currently four species farmed sustainably in Newfoundland and Labrador: Blue mussels, Atlantic salmon, Steelhead trout and Atlantic cod. Our sites employ the latest technologies from around the world and our companies are committed to a culture of innovation and continuous improvement. NAIA works closely with the many community, regional and national development and regulatory agencies to foster an atmosphere of positive growth of the aquaculture industry for all residences of this province. We are honoured to have this opportunity on behalf of our members, and our Province.
