Wild Fisheries and Fish Farming Interactions – Connaigre Bay

The objective is to determine if there are measurable impacts caused by the introduction of fish farming, negative or positive, on the commercial species currently harvested in Connaigre Bay.

Conducting a multi year survey (snow crab and lobster) to compare scientific data (abundance and distribution) before, during, and after the establishments of the farm sites.  There is a unique opportunity to study the environmental interaction and possible impacts in a bay that has never been used before in aquaculture.
