Canadian Aquaculture R&D Review 2019

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has issued a call for R&D project summaries to be included in the 2019 edition of Canadian Aquaculture R&D Review.

The Canadian Aquaculture R&D Review is intended to allow those involved with aquaculture to increase awareness of projects related to aquaculture in Canada. This will help to solidify a community with a common vision for the future development of a sustainable Canadian aquaculture sector. Similar to the previous editions, this national review of aquaculture research and development will provide brief summaries of recent research projects (2017-present), in-depth coverage of select projects, and overviews of the various funding organizations in Canada supporting aquaculture R&D.

Research Targeted
Articles for this publication can come from the diverse scientific fields that contribute to Canadian aquaculture research, including, among others, advances in husbandry, development of new species or farming practices, research on disease and its management, interactions between aquaculture and the environment, or new uses for aquaculture products. Species studied can include finfish, shellfish, other invertebrates, and plants in both freshwater and marine environments.

How to submit
If you are interested in sharing information about your recent or current aquaculture-related research, contact DFO directly at for assistance with the editing and compilation process.

The deadline for submissions is November 9, 2018.
