Aquaculture industry welcomes international agricultural journalists to Canada
Canadian farmed seafood will be featured on the reception menu of the “Taste of Canada” dinner that will kick off the 2011 International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) Congress, September 14-18 in Guelph, Ontario.
Over 260 of the world’s leading agriculture journalists will enjoy smoked Atlantic farmed salmon (True North Salmon) and Ontario farm-raised rainbow trout (North Shore Specialties) donated by CAIA as an in-kind sponsor of the event.
This event is a nice fit for CAIA – Aquaculture is the new flavour in the agricultural ‘scoop’ and Canadian seafood farmers have great stories to tell!
Like all farming, aquaculture in Canada helps to supply a growing population with healthy and nutritious food all year round.
Moreover, aquaculture is the world’s fastest-growing animal food-producing sector – and already produces half of all the seafood the world eats.
