Aquaculture is farming in water. It’s the cultivation of fish, shellfish and aquatic plants in fresh or marine water, typically for food. Aquaculture started in Canada as a way to supplement natural fish stocks, and it has since grown into a large, commercial industry. Today, seafood farms are located in every province and in the Yukon, and aquaculture employs 25,000 people across Canada.
