If you are interested in knowing how freshwater net-pen aquaculture is utilized in Canada, or wish to share your concerns, then this meeting is an ideal opportunity.
Goal: Educate & Inform – Initiate a public dialog as we together explore how our water resources can best be deployed for society’s benefit and delivering fresh, healthy, and affordable seafood
Who’s invited: All interested stakeholders
Format: Moderated panels, including both US and Canadian stakeholders, that will address specific topics/issues -including nutrients, fish health, genetics, ecosystem stewardship, and best practices — followed by Q&A and group discussion
