Fisheries and Aquaculture


A license is required for fish processing and/or aquaculture sites in our province. Processing applications for new licenses, license transfers and changes in ownership must be forwarded to an independent Fish Processing Licensing Board. The Board in reviewing these applications makes a recommendation to the Minister who will make the final decision.

Parties interested in pursuing aquaculture must submit their application to the department. These applications must demonstrate expertise in the industry, financing capability, and a business plan.
