Why is salmon farming important to Canada?

Canada is a world leader in salmon farming; with the longest coastline of any country on Earth, we also have the greatest aquaculture opportunity in the world. As the global population continues to grow, Canada is in a unique position to provide salmon to the world in a sustainable way that creates economic growth in coastal communities and contributes to Canada’s goals to reduce climate impacts, protect our oceans and wild salmon, and provide a safe, secure food source for Canadians.
