The ocean is as important to communities today as it has ever been. Fisheries, aquaculture, transportation, recreation and tourism, even energy (think wind and waves, not oil and gas) are dependent on a healthy, well-managed marine ecosystem. Ecotrust Canada takes an integrated approach to the ocean, ensuring that all these marine activities are managed to avoid conflicts and environmental degradation, promote community development and local management, and respect Aboriginal title and rights.
Ecotrust Canada is a leader in building a local, sustainable seafood sector in BC. From the ocean to your plate, from marine-use planning to seafood processing, we are working to effect a sea change on the supply chain and transform how we do business on the ocean.
