This Focus Area Report discusses the regulatory and management processes of aquaculture, introductions and transfers, and transgenics, and of the measures taken to minimize their impacts on wild salmon stocks. The salmon aquaculture industry in Atlantic Canada is primarily located in New Brunswick, but also has significant presence in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and Labrador. Most of the introductions and transfers in salmon aquaculture are either freshwater to freshwater movements of eggs or fish between hatcheries, or freshwater to saltwater movements of smolt from hatcheries to marine cage sites. In Canada there have been no approvals for transgenic salmonids for commercial aquaculture, release, or consumption. Approval for transgenic salmon has occurred for research in contained facilities. The provincial and federal governments share jurisdiction over aquaculture and introduction and transfers regulation and management in Atlantic Canada.
