AQUACULTURE & LEGISLATION
Eyes wide shut: Senate report on aquaculture
The Senate committee's three-volume report presents no evidence that the aquaculture industry is over-regulated compared to other resource sectors such as forestry, mining and livestock operations. According to reports from DFO and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, federal aquaculture regulations (12 acts) are on par with regulations for other types of livestock operations (12 acts) in Canada.
