When the air becomes fresh and the leaves to turn a mosaic of colours, Atlantic salmon return to many rivers across Nova Scotia.
An amendment to the Fisheries and Coastal Resources Act will allow a financial contribution to be collected on the sale of lobster, if the industry chooses to implement one.
The aquaculture industry was worth more than $54.3 million in 2013 and directly employed 636 men and women in full- and part-time positions. At present, there are 44 companies actively farming fish in Nova Scotia.
