Meet our New Community Outreach and Education Coordinator

Say hello to ACFFA’s newest team member Katie McLaughlin!

Katie is taking on the newly established role of Community Outreach and Education Coordinator, in which she will help plan, execute and support ACFFA’s community outreach and education activities.

A graduate with honours from the New Brunswick Community College Aquaculture Technician Program in 2012, Katie brings over a decade of experience in aquaculture to her new role. She has worked in an ISO17025 lab, wet lab and multiple hatcheries. In her most recent role, she worked at New Brunswick’s provincial research organization RPC as a Molecular Biology Technician and Bioscience Client Relations Lead. A resident of Black’s Harbour, NB, Katie also worked at the Huntsman Marine Science Centre as an Aquaculture Research Technician.

Katie will help us continue to educate people about Atlantic Canada’s salmon farming sector by taking the lead on ACFFA’s community projects and services, including our New Brunswick Open Farm Day tours, our K-12 education programs as well as our activities to promote aquaculture as a career.

Please join us in welcoming Katie to the ACFFA team and feel free to reach out to her at k.mclaughlin@atlanticfishfarmers.com or 506-755-0319.
