Meet ACFFA’s Science Liaison Coordinator

Say hello to ACFFA’s newest team member Evie Gagné!

Evie is taking on the newly established role of Science Liaison Coordinator, in which she will provide project management support and coordination of the association’s science, research, and policy projects.

Evie brings to ACFFA nearly 25 years of experience working in fish health in New Brunswick’s salmon farming sector, including a decade as a Senior Fish Health Technician with Cooke Inc., in Black’s Harbour NB. She has vast experience maintaining both fish health and treatment databases for farms and hatcheries as well as working knowledge of the salmon farming sector’s third-party certification programs.

Evie earned a Bachelor of Science in Natural Science and a Bachelor of Outdoor Education (Honours) from Lakehead University and has served as Board President of the Charlotte County SPCA since 1999. In 2008, she and her fellow board members built the first animal shelter in Charlotte County, NB, which is still thriving today.

Evie will organize and host workshops that are targeted to meeting specific sector challenges and assist industry with meeting the requirements of regulatory/voluntary certification programs in their pursuit of more standardized approaches to sustainability, food safety and quality. She’ll also be our go-to person to communicate salmon farming science and technology priorities to academia, government, and the public.

Please join us in welcoming Evie to the ACFFA team and feel free to reach out to her at e.gagne@atlanticfishfarmers.com or 506-467-7337.
