Fisheries and Oceans Canada Releases Report On Closed Containment

CANADA - Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has released a report, "Assessing potential technologies for closed-containment saltwater salmon aquaculture".

Included in the report’s summary points is the statement "A review of over 40 closed-containment systems from around the world found that none was producing exclusively adult Atlantic salmon and that many previous attempts to do so had failed.

Reasons for failure were numerous and were often interrelated.

These reasons included but were not limited to mechanical breakdown, poor fish performance, management failure, declines in market price and inadequate financing."
