In terms of aquaculture, our Conservative party believes in creating and supporting
jobs in coastal communities. A re-elected Conservative government will continue to
work to support aquaculture that is strictly regulated and operating transparently.
Our Conservative Government has invested over $70 million to improve environmental monitoring and science.
The Province will remain a key player in aquaculture. It will continue to issue tenures where operations take place, in either the marine or freshwater environment, and manage business aspects of aquaculture such as work place health and safety within the province. It will be important for the sustainability of the aquaculture industry that they follow the rules and find ways to innovate and keep a social licence to farm fish in BC. Now and in the future.
