Canada’s minister of fisheries, Joyce Murray, released a proposal for British Columbia's aquaculture sector to "adopt alternative production methods that minimise or eliminate interactions between farmed and wild salmon".
Released on 29 July, the minister also launched the next round of stakeholder engagement on the future of the province’s aquaculture sector.
The proposed framework aims to “guide the engagement with the province, First Nations, industry, conservation organisations and British Columbians, and take into account diverse views on aquaculture”.
