Aquaculture and Biological Interactions Research at SABS

Station scientists use a multi-disciplinary approach to enhance the economic and environmental sustainability of the Canadian aquaculture industry. In Southwest New Brunswick, salmon aquaculture is a major economic player. Station research includes studying the progression and transmission of fish diseases and pathogens; multi-trophic aquaculture to minimize environmental effects and provide alternate species for harvest; studying the interactions of aquaculture with wild species and ecosystems; and oceanographic monitoring to provide advice for site location and reduction of disease transfer.
