The Healthy Bays Network is a community driven alliance of individuals and organizations with a shared vision for sustainable coastal economies and healthy bays free of open net-pen aquaculture in Nova Scotia. 

What guides us?

We believe in protecting the health of coastal ecosystems and maintaining the integrity of our coastal communities across the province.

Our mission is to stop the expansion of open net-pen finfish aquaculture in Nova Scotian waters and to ensure a transition away from open net-pen finfish aquaculture in Canada. We can do so much better than this.


What do we do?

Together, we advocate as a unified voice in opposition to the open net-pen finfish industry, doing whatever it takes to protect our bays. We engage decision-makers and we empower individuals with the support they need to take action in stewardship of the waters they know and love.
