Canada strengthens its aquaculture production facing the future.

December 16, 2016

Considered one of the forms of future world food, aquaculture has become one of the greatest strengths in British Colombia, in western Canada. This is one of the most developed economic activities accounting for almost 50 percent of world fishery products for food. Canada offers a variety of nearly 100 species of crustaceans, fish and marine plants cultivated in special farms, which reduce the gap between limited natural resources and the demand of the world population. Although Asian countries, led by China, India and Vietnam are the largest aquaculture producers in the world, the North American area has historical growth in recent years and has achieved a strong presence in global markets. The west coast of Canada has significantly developed these mariculture and therefore is home to one of the most important festivals of aquaculture to do business, make innovations, industry leaders, suppliers and international representatives throughout North America and Europe.
