From a July 12 news release from the province:
Public consultations to help Nova Scotia develop world-class aquaculture standards that include economic development and environmental protection begin next week.

There are about 20 public meetings scheduled around the province over the next seven weeks. The meetings will be led by independent consultants Meinhard Doelle and Bill Lahey, both Dalhousie law professors.
Sessions will be 2:30-4:30 p.m. and 6:30-8:30 p.m. at each location. The July 24 session is at St. James United Church, 3811 Old Sambro Rd, Sambro
