30th Anniversary Awards, Bulletin 112-2 (2014)
published on 03/07/2014

In recognition of the 30th Anniversary of the Aquaculture Association of Canada, a Bulletin has been produced which acknowledges the different awards presented this year. Normally, we award the Lifetime Achievement Award in alternate years with the Research Award of Excellence, this year because of the 30th Anniversary we awarded both.  As in previous years, we acknowledged the efforts of students with Best Student Oral Presentation and Best Student Poster awards as well as scholarship awards.  In addition, in celebration of the 30th  Anniversary, we held an essay contest for both undergraduate and graduate students, for which cash prizes were awarded.


Profiles in Canadian Aquaculture, Bulletin 112-1 (2014)
published on 26/05/2014

The Aquaculture Association of Canada (AAC) has been an important part of the Canadian aquaculture landscape for the past 30 years. The AAC is uniquely Canadian consisting of members from industry, industry associations, academia, and federal and provincial governments. As part of the 30th anniversary celebration, the AAC is acknowledging in this publication the talented and hard working people of Canadian aquaculture


Pathogen Exchange between Wild and Farmed Finfish, Bulletin 111-3 (2014)
published on 02/07/2014

AAC organized a series of discussions regarding pathogen exchange between wild and cultured animals. These discussions culminated in a face-to-face workshop with a panel of scientific experts which was sponsored by ACRDP.  The workshop was held at the Aquaculture Canada Conference in Guleph, Ontario in 2013; the results of which are presented here.


Open Ocean Aquaculture 111-2 (2014)
published on 23/04/2014

This publication of the Aquaculture Association of Canada contains papers based on presentations from the 2007 St. Andrews Canada-U.S. Sustainable Open Ocean Aquaculture Workshop as well as reports on the 5-year study by the ACFFA to assess the economic and technical feasibility of moving salmon aquaculture into a higher energy environment and testing on the net pen system designed by AEG for high energy aquaculture sites.


Seafood Sustainability: Progress and challenges 111-1 (2013)
published on 01/12/2013

This timely issue covers a diverse range of topics from improved methods of scallop culture, to the environmental regulatory challenges of monitoring salmon farms in Atlantic Canada. However, sustainability here is not just restricted to aquaculture proper. Modern aquaculture now accounts for more than half the global seafood consumption. Given this new reality and the inexorable link between aquaculture and fisheries, sustainability of both seafood sources should be considered in consort. Articles in this issue pursue this theme. Perspectives on seafood sustainability certification programs and the merits of eco-labelling are reviewed in a discussion forum, by grocers, scientists, marketers, fishermen, government and a professional chef.


Fish Welfare in Aquaculture Workshop, Bulletin 110-3 (2013)
published on 01/05/2013

The growth of the aquaculture industry has led to increased consumer awareness of farmed fish in the market place and the need for agreed-upon standards for their production, including standards that address the treatment of farmed fish prior to slaughter (i.e., fish welfare). Although such husbandry standards are already in place at the farm/company level, and some aspects such as maximum stocking densities are regulated conditions of licence, it is within this context of public scrutiny that the aim  of  this  1-day  workshop  was  to  bring  together experts  in  various aspects of the science, regulation and management of fish welfare in aquaculture, to determine the need for research to better understand and provide for the welfare of farmed fish. This was done through a series of state-of-the-art presentations (morning session) followed by a facilitated discussion of research gaps and priorities (afternoon session), with a focus on salmon aquaculture in Canada. The workshop was held on November


A Brief History of Aquaculture Research and Training on Canada’s Pacific Coast 110-2(2013)
published on 18/01/2013

The History of Aquaculture Research and Training in St. Andrews, New Brunswick 110-1(2012)
published on 09/07/2012

The articles presented provide an overview of the challenges and successes of aquaculture’s pioneers and participants. Since the first research was conducted by Professor A.P. Knight of Queen’s University, who was instrumental in the formation of the Biological Board of Canada and the establishment of a laboratory in St. Andrews, the small tourist town has become home to the recently renovated Huntsman Marine Science Centre, Canada’s first Aquaculture Technician Program at the New Brunswick Community College Campus in St. Andrews and the St. Andrews Biological Station (SABS), a science research facility of DFO. As well, the Atlantic Salmon Federation has been located in the area since its inception in 1982.

published on 31/12/2009

Proceedings of a Special Session held at Aquaculture CanadaOM 2009, the 26th annual meeting of the Aquaculture Association of Canada, Nanaimo, BC, May 10-13, 2009. The theme of the conference—Aquaculture: Meeting the Challenges—provided an opportunity to emphasize the advances the industry has made and discuss opportunities for the future. The session, Application of Genome Science to Sustainable Aquaculture, was organized to highlight the contribution of genome research to successful aquaculture ventures. The session proceedings were prepared to illustrate the application of genome research to a wider audience. Genome Atlantic and Genome British Columbia provided financial support for the publication of these proceedings.

Aquaculture Public Awareness and Education 105-2 (2005)
published on 08/06/2006

Proceedings of a Special Session held at Aquaculture CanadaOM 2005 in St. John's, Newfoundland, July 3-6. During the Aquaculture Canada conference held in St. John’s, NL on July 3-6, 2005, a special session was held to highlight the vital role that public awareness and education play in the development of the aquaculture industry. As with other new and developing commercial industries, aquaculture is experiencing challenges communicating its ‘messages’ to the public. Such messages include promoting awareness of aquaculture products as healthy and safe food choices, the types of work available in the industry, the various species being cultured, and the sustainable farming practices used by the industry.
