  • Climate Change and Aquaculture

    One of the keys to the success of our aquaculture industry is the open environment it operates in.  Combined with enabling climatic conditions, our members recognize their success is directly connected to the health of this environment.

    The condition of our water, land and air are all important contributors to our mission to successfully grow sustainable seafood. In that spirit, the PEI Aquaculture Alliance was delighted to partner with the University of Prince Edward Island and the PEI Department of Environment, Labor and Justice in co-hosting this Climate Change and Aquaculture Symposium; whichtook place on March 11th at UPEI.  The event was a tremendous success, and we want to thank everyone who participated.
