Government champions tour Ontario fish and shrimp farms

Last week, a delegation of 25 government stakeholders and industry representatives toured fish and shrimp farms across Ontario. The pan-provincial seafood safari was intended to showcase the sector’s growth opportunities, introduce our farmers, and illustrate the long-term Indigenous partnerships critical to our industry’s success.
 
The two-day tour started at Aqua-Cage Fisheries in Parry Sound, then traveled to GOOD4U Shrimp in Estaire. The group then headed to Manitoulin Island for tours of several Cole-Munro Trout Farms’ net-pen farms. It ended with a look at the lake whitefish pilot at New North Fisheries outside of Manitowaning.
 
The delegation included representatives from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), FedNor, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), and Ontario Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines (MENDM).
