    Ecological Risk Assessment of Marine Fish Aquaculture Framework For more than 20 years, countries have been developing national guidelines for environmental risk assessment. At first their focus was predominantly on environmental risks to a single species (humans) and one end point (human health), but later nonhuman-oriented environmental risk. The B.C. Agrifood and Seafood Strategic Growth Plan included a commitment to examine the rules and restrictions that guide the application and approval process to ensure that aquaculture operations are socially and ecologically sustainable and can co-exist with B.C.’s wild fishery resource, by forming a time-limited Minister of Agriculture’s Advisory Council on Finfish Aquaculture.

Telde, Canary Islands, Spain 2Departamento de Biología, Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Marine finfish aquaculture is one of the most hotly debated resource issues on the West Coast. Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) fish farms, especially those in British Columbia, have received much of the attention. Concerns include disease transfer, pollution from net-pen facilities, impacts from escaped salmon, and cumulative ecosystem impacts.

With its mild climate, good water quality and sheltered bays, the province's coastline is well suited to all forms of aquaculture. The environmental and economic impacts. The environmental impacts attributed to salmon aquaculture are numerous. Many of these problems arise due to the conditions in which the salmon are cultured, with often up to tens of thousands of salmon enclosed in pens for months at a time, offering ideal conditions for the spread of diseases and parasites throughout the enclosed population.

The escape of cultured fish from a marine aquaculture facility is a type of biological invasion that may lead to a variety of potential ecological and economic effects on native fish. However, the environmental impact of aquaculture is completely dependent upon the species being farmed, the intensity of production and the location of the farm.

Additionally, new strategies and technologies have emerged and have proven that it is possible to have sustainable aquaculture. Aquaculture notably affects people and societies far beyond obvious contributions to food security or any positive or negative environmental impacts.

Globally, million people currently work as fish farmers and, as with fisheries, this figure increases by three- to fourfold if secondary and postharvest employment is included (FAO ).

Aquaculture production British Columbia. The environmental impacts of aquaculture largely depend on the circumstances in which the fish are produced, and in turn affect the sustainability of the industry due to its unregulated nature in many areas.

In the Northeast Pacific, sablefish fisheries are managed separately in three areas: Alaska, the Canadian province of British Columbia, and the west coast of the contiguous United States (Washington, Oregon, and California).In all these areas catches peaked in the s and 80s and have been lower since that.
