New Aquaculture Centre in St. Albans

“This state-of-the-art facility reflects the wonderful success of our expanding aquaculture industry,” Premier Kathy Dunderdale said. She was talking about the new Centre for Aquaculture Health and Development in St. Alban’s on the province’s south coast. “The centre will be an international model for aquatic diagnostics, marine biosecurity and energy conservation. It will ensure that Newfoundland and Labrador’s aquaculture resources are protected well into the future, and I am proud to see that the Newfoundland and Labrador aquaculture industry is leading the way in diagnostics for aquaculture producing regions across the globe.” In 2010, aquaculture production in the province rose 12.7 per cent, from 13,627 tonnes in 2009 to 15,360 tonnes in 2010. The total market value of the industry has increased from $35 million in 2005 to $116 million in 2010. Aquaculture production is expected to increase again in 2011 with an expansion of the salmonid sector.
