Session Title

Local Food Production: Aquaculture in the Salish Sea

Location

2016SSEC

Description

Aquaculture is a highly regulated use within the Salish Sea. Although Washington State and British Columbia share a border and similar aquaculture management challenges – they have differing governance structures, regulatory authorities and environmental statutes that individualize their approach to aquaculture. The role of cities and counties are a significant factor in Washington waters, while federal oversight is prominent in British Columbia waters. Existing environmental conditions also vary from the Strait of Georgia to southern Puget Sound creating different aquaculture research needs and applicability. This lively overview will describe the regulatory and political context within which food production exists, and how science and public interests are informing convergent and divergent management approaches north and south of the border.

Comments
