With the growing demand for seafood, global aquaculture production has surpassed capture fisheries landings as a way of providing a healthy food choice to a growing population. Aquaculture production in Nova Scotia is also trending upward and the sector overall is increasingly relying on technology solutions to increase productivity and to reduce environmental impacts.

The Centre for Marine Applied Research (CMAR) was established to focus on areas of research and collaboration to propel the Nova Scotia aquaculture growth strategy forward. CMAR leads and supports projects with industry, communities and stakeholder groups to collect and analyze biophysical and socio-economic data to support informed decision making and to foster innovation.

The CMAR team will speak to emerging trends for both shellfish and finfish operations and discuss pain points, technology needs and solutions as well as showcasing current and future project initiatives with local partners.
