Wondering what you can do to help protect Nova Scotia's coastal ecosystems? Here are a few ways to get started.


Write to Premier Rankin

In Nova Scotia, the buck stops with our provincial leadership when it comes to open net-pen aquaculture. Tell Premier Rankin that salmon cages and pollutive industry are not part of the green and prosperous future that his government has promised. 

Make a donation

Join a stewardship group

Volunteer your time

We are always looking for volunteers with skillsets of all kinds. Please get in touch to learn more about volunteer work with the Healthy Bays Network that will best suit you!

Call your MLA 

We need the support of Nova Scotian lawmakers to ensure a transition away from open net-pen salmon farming. Get on the phone and remind your local MLA that this issue is important to you and your neighbours. 

Contact your council

Your local government has an important role to play in protecting our bays. The Government of Nova Scotia developed the aquaculture expansion plans in place today under the auspices of employment opportunity in small, coastal communities. Let your council know that open net-pen salmon farms are not welcome in our bays.

Get the word out

We need to make sure that aquaculture is an important ballot issue in the next provincial election. Help us spread the word! Beyond friends and family who care, most of our member organizations have a variety of social media tools to put you in touch with a wider audience.

Get a sign

We have signs! The say, "Say NO to open net-pens". There are lots available for you and your neighbours. We can deliver to most of Nova Scotia!
