People and groups in the Halifax area can help Nova Scotia develop leading-edge aquaculture standards at two public consultations Monday, Sept. 9.
The meetings will be held 2:30-4:30 p.m. and 6:30-8:30 p.m.
in the Bluenose Ballroom, Delta Halifax, 1990 Barrington St., Halifax.
In May, Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Sterling Belliveau announced the plan to develop regulations to ensure Nova Scotia has a more environmentally, socially and economically sustainable aquaculture industry.
Public meetings have taken place around the province this summer. The meetings are being led by independent consultants Meinhard Doelle and Bill Lahey, both Dalhousie law professors.
“We are very pleased with the range and quality of the input we have received to date,” said Mr. Doelle.
“We look forward to concluding this phase of our process with a set of final sessions in Halifax,” said Mr. Lahey.
