Download Energy efficiency for the Canadian seafood processing and aquaculture industries

Fishing, aquaculture and seafood processing are a $2 billion industry and the main engine for our rural, coastal and aboriginal communities. Through the Fisheries and Aquaculture Clean Technology Adoption Program, we are helping to ensure our fisheries and aquaculture businesses are environmentally sustainable, efficient and well-positioned for Author: Fisheries And Oceans Canada.

Efficient use of resources required to conduct operations is vital to aquaculture sustainability. Conservative feed management, water consumption, and energy consumption – together with production area optimization - are all important indicators of sustainable resource use by the aquaculture industry.

Aquaculture. Aquaculture is the farming of fish, shellfish and aquatic plants in fresh or salt water. It is an established practice in many parts of the world.

In Canada, aquaculture was first used to enhance natural stocks. It is now a large-scale commercial industry across the country.

The value of deliveries from poultry processing increased percent annually on average. Indeliveries were $ billion or 24 percent of deliveries in the meat processing industry and percent in the food industry. Poultry processing establishments are distributed throughout Canada, though there is a higher concentration in the centre.

lynchpins to build confidence in the aquaculture industry. Although aquaculture has achieved only a fraction of the true potential, it would take little growth to have a dramatic impact on the provincial economy. Even a modest increase in aquaculture leases could move the industry from a value of $40–50 million, with limited local fish.

Canadian energy assets. The total value of Canadian* energy assets (CEA) went up in to $ billion, an increase of 5% from million in Indomestic CEAs totalled $ billion, down % fromwhile Canadian energy assets abroad totalled $ billion, up. The aquaculture industry Energy efficiency for the Canadian seafood processing and aquaculture industries book overseen in Canada by a combination of federal, provincial and local authorities.

In recent years, both the federal and provincial governments have been striving towards a more efficient regulatory framework, balancing the need to protect the environment, sustain fisheries, and enable a competitive industry to flourish.

Aquaculture in Canada plays a prominent role in Canada's ecological, social and economic stage. With Canada having the world's longest coastline, as well as the world's largest freshwater system and tidal range, aquaculture is an obvious choice for Canada.

The vast range of aquatic organisms farmed in Canadian aquaculture production is beneficial to the industry's attempt to implement. Processing accounts for roughly an additional 10 percent of the energy use for most seafood products, while consumption contributes about 20 to 30 percent.

For filter feeders, the common energy-intensive stages are transportation and holding of live animals, infrastructure and processing, depending upon final product form and if there is a purification stage. and performance and thus there are few fundamental benchmarks for productivity or efficiency to rely upon.

The development of a standardized farm model, which addresses the basic technological, production, financial, environmental and regulatory aspects of commercial aquaculture would be a milestone in Canadian aquaculture.

The aquaculture industry in Canada is a dynamic sector which has experienced significant growth since primarily as a result of increases in production of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) in marine net salmon farms are located in sheltered waters of the Pacific Ocean off of British Columbia, and in the Atlantic Maritime provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

Canada takes new steps to improve aquaculture sector. which the government says will bring more clarity for industry, stakeholders and the Canadian public about how aquaculture is managed for responsible growth in Canada. “The Government of Canada is committed to making aquaculture more effective, efficient and environmentally sustainable.

InCanadian farmed seafood production and processing generated a total of over $ billion in economic activity, $2 billion in GDP, and $ billion in wages Canadian workers.

CANADIAN prime minister Justin Trudeau’s plan to ban net pen salmon farming in British Columbia faces several challenges, according to a new government report. Canada’s Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO)’s investigation into four different production systems for salmon farming in BC found a complete move to land based sites by Industrial Energy Audit Guidebook: Guidelines for Conducting an Energy Audit in Industrial Facilities.
