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.

One of the keys to the success of our aquaculture industry is the open environment it operates in. Combined with enabling climatic conditions, our members recognize their success is directly connected to the health of this environment.
The condition of our water, land and air are all important contributors to our mission to successfully grow sustainable seafood. In that spirit, the PEI Aquaculture Alliance was delighted to partner with the University of Prince Edward Island and the PEI Department of Environment, Labor and Justice in co-hosting this Climate Change and Aquaculture Symposium; whichtook place on March 11th at UPEI.
