ABOUT THE ONTARIO AQUACULTURE ASSOCIATION

By production and volume, we represent more than 95% of the aquaculture industry in Ontario, including finfish and shrimp growers, land-based and open net-pen operations, seafood for food or recreational fishing, feed suppliers and other companies invested in growing healthy, sustainable protein here in Ontario.
