Sustainable Development

Newfoundland and Labrador is ensuring that aquaculture will be sustainable with a long and prosperous future.

Protection and maintenance of the natural pristine quality of the Newfoundland and Labrador environment is a principal component of our commitment to the aquaculture industry. The Province promotes sustainable development through management plans and guidelines that protect our valuable water resources. Aquaculture companies are required to operate within progressive fish health management policies based upon site and year class separation and regionally-based aquaculture plans. This adaptive management approach promotes industry responsibility for maintaining environmental integrity.

Newfoundland and Labrador's commitment to preserving environmental resources is foremost in Cultivating Your Investment.
