Leveraging Our Opportunities
The sea farmers conference is a time to celebrate the future of the flourishing aquaculture industry in Nova Scotia. We come together to share regulator insights, recent developments and discuss the path forward.
From shore to shore across Nova Scotia, we as a community share the irrepressible spirit of innovation and a commitment to the practice of producing quality seafood through sustainable farming.
Join us in January as we come together to focus toward the future, leveraging our opportunities for economic stability and a bright future for all Nova Scotians.
