Prince Edward Island (PEI) fishers and aquaculture have an opportunity to develop new technologies and reduce their environmental impacts. The Department of Fisheries and Communities has developed two programs, the Research, Innovation and Growth Program and the PEI Fisheries and Aquaculture Clean Technology Adoption Program. These programs have been established to support the sustainable growth and meet current needs of PEI’s fishery and aquaculture sectors. Members of the fishing, aquaculture and seafood processing sectors are eligible to apply.
The Research, Innovation and Growth Program will provide support for small, short-term and industry-led applied research and development projects with the goal to overcome industry challenges. More information here.
The PEI Fisheries and Aquaculture Clean Technology Adoption Program will provide an incentive for industry to adopt technologies or equipment that have been proven to reduce emissions or potential environmental impacts. More information here.
