Youth Innovation – Aquaculture Science & Technology for NL Youth

In the spring of 2011, NAIA and the Marine Institute of MUN initiated a project entitled Youth Innovation – Aquaculture Science and Technology for NL Youth.  Also, in the fall and spring of 2011/2012 they initiated a project entitled Youth Innovation – Talking to Youth.  The purpose of these projects was to help promote innovative projects and activities that enrich the existing school learning environment and improve  recruitment potential into the aquaculture industry. During this project, a series of aquaculture business and career profiles were created for NAIA’s & Marine Institute’s online resources to illustrate potential business options and successful career paths in the NL aquaculture industry.  You can view these profiles on the following page entitled: Real People, Real Careers at
Also, a series of aquaculture science and technology modules were compiled which will assist and encourage students to complete innovative projects and activities within their school curriculum. Pilot testing for phase one of these salmonid and mussel sector resources took place at Bay d’Espoir Academy in Milltown, and King Academy in Harbour Breton.  Pilot testing for phase two took place at Campbellton, Robert’s Arm, Pilley’s Island, New-Wes-Valley, McCallum and English Harbour West, NL.
The anticipated outcome of these projects is to help educate our youth and encourage them to study in an area related to aquaculture which may enable them to live and work in their home province.  NAIA, in partnership with Marine Institute will continue to participate in various events throughout the province in  efforts to help fulfill these objectives. Website linkages and aquaculture educational materials for sharing information and resources is now available through both the NAIA and Marine Institute website at and/or
