MOU signed to strengthen aquaculture in both Australian and Canadian regions.

Primary Industries Minister Guy Barnett and Nova Scotia’s Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Keith Colwell have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to share knowledge on fisheries and aquaculture development, as reported on the Tasmanian Government’s site.

“Tasmania’s $947 million per annum seafood sector is synonymous with our premium food brand, and we are always looking at ways to value add,” Mr Barnett said.

It was part of strengthening collaboration on fisheries and aquaculture matters for both regions. The delegation from Nova Scotia, led by Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Keith Colwell talked to fisheries experts.

“The Tasmanian Government is looking forward to working cooperatively with the Nova Scotian Government, as we both continue to develop and improve best practice fishing,” added Barnett.
