The PEI Aquaculture Alliance held its annual golf tournament at the Glen Afton Golf Course this past Friday. Shellfish and fin fish farmers from around the island, as well as their supporters and business partners, took time to unwind and play 18 holes of the province’s most popular sport.
The Prince Edward Island Aquaculture Alliance is an organization that promotes and works on behalf of the shellfish and fin fish growers on PEI.
From their website:
“The Prince Edward Island Aquaculture Alliance (PEIAA) is a non-profit organization, established in January 1998, as an umbrella organization representing the PEI Cultured Mussel Growers Association, the Island Oyster Growers Group, and the PEI Finfish Association. A proactive voice unified voice on behalf of its 150-plus members, the PEI Aquaculture Alliance advocates on behalf of the industry, enables important research and development and shares relevant information on current issues and opportunities. The Prince Edward Island Aquaculture Alliance was formed to provide focus for the Prince Edward Island aquaculture industry and to enhance industry prosperity through its development as an effective world competitor.”
Ann Worth, the Executive Director of the PEI Aquaculture Alliance, spoke with us to give an overview of the industries on the island.
Go Deep offered our support by sponsoring the barbecue portion of the event and also sent our Marketing Coordinator to cook for the growers and help the organizers throughout the day. It is important for us, as a supplier and manufacturer, to support every aspect of the industries we cater to. When we do this, everyone benefits. Below are a few pictures from the event.
