Rich in tradition, PEI has a superior world-wide reputation for our quality and flavour with chefs, retailers, and consumers of cultured seafood products. The cool fresh waters of PEI’s bays and estuaries provide optimal growing conditions for farmed blue mussels and Malpeque oysters. Our abundant supply of high-quality groundwater also allows for dynamic Rainbow trout, Atlantic salmon, Halibut hatcheries, and nursery production units to thrive in the global marketplace.

The innovative and environmentally conscious members of the Prince Edward Island Aquaculture Alliance (PEIAA) are committed to cultivating safe products, and insuring a sustainable environment. In addition to being strong partners in growing the Canadian aquaculture industry, our PEI members have ready-access to domestic, US, and International markets, and are key contributors to Prince Edward Island's economy.
