Aquaculture – the growth and processing of marine life such as mussels, is a key focus area within the Innovative and Productive Industry Sectors theme within the Bay of Connections Regional Economic Development Strategy.

The Strategy and Action Plan for Aquaculture was one of the first sector strategies to be developed under the Bay of Connections framework and it has seen significant progress in that time. The strategy was reviewed and updated in 2013.
