In Committee from the Senate of Canada

Fisheries and Oceans – April 1, 2014

Senators continue their study on the regulation of aquaculture, current challenges and future prospects for the industry in Canada. Senators hear from Jason Flint, Daniel Chaput and John Worgan from Health Canada. The federal government has proposed new regulations on the use of treatment products in aquaculture. Health Canada establishes maximum residue limits for pesticide residues in farmed fish so that they pose no adverse health effects even if ingested daily by humans over a lifetime. The use of drugs, pesticides and disinfectants in aquaculture is regulated in Canada. (April 1, 2014)
