Responsible and Sustainable Farming

Our farmers know that a healthy ocean is essential for the production of healthy, high-quality seafood. Caring for our fish and shellfish means caring for the ocean and the environment for our future generations.

Newfoundland and Labrador’s aquaculture industry is rooted in strict adherence to science-based sustainable farming practices. Our farmers use resources efficiently, following comprehensive farming practices for feed management and water and energy consumption.

All of our aquaculture sites adhere to an array of provincial statutes, regulations, policies and guidelines. Many of our aquaculturists also further surpass government environmental standards by achieving third party certification, further validating that their farmed seafood products meet comprehensive food safety, environmental and social standards.
