A Senate report on Canada's one-billion-dollar aquaculture industry is recommending the creation of a national database that would offer the public access to information about every aquaculture operator in the country. The report also calls for a new Aquaculture Act and more research on the use of pesticides. Sue Scott of the Atlantic Salmon Federation says more research is not what the industry needs.
