Attention ALL AAC Members,
Past and Present Board and Committee Members
The Aquaculture Association of Canada was incorporated in 1984, making 2014 its 30th anniversary. To celebrate such an auspicious occasion, the AAC will publish a Special Bulletin to highlight the diversity and dedication of its members and more memorable moments in AAC’s history. Although it would be nice to highlight all of our members we will endeavour to represent all categories of membership over the years including students, individuals and organizations or companies.
- Current Conference
The Aquaculture Association of Canada and our conference co-hosts invite you to join us at Aquaculture CanadaOM 2013, “Farming Our Waters: Agrifood Innovations” in Guelph, ON, June 2nd-5th, 2013. A program is planned to deliver a comprehensive agenda of aquaculture science and technology presentations as well as thought-provoking keynote and plenary speakers.
The Aquaculture Association of Canada (AAC) has an interest in the dissemination of technical/scientific aquaculture information in the support of aquaculture education & training. A need was identified to provide a current database of scientific evidence related to key relevant issues in salmon aquaculture. As a result, a joint industry / government project was established and funding assistance was provided through the Fisheries and Oceans Aquaculture Collaborative Research and Development Program (ACRDP). The Coastal Aquaculture Research and Training (CART) and the Fisheries and Marine Institute, developed the databas for the Canadian Aquaculture Industry Alliance. The role of the AAC in hosting this database is an important one as it furthers aquaculture science knowledge exchange in Canada.
