Fisheries and Agriculture Exports data summary graphic

Due to differences in source data, the data for both seafood and agriculture exports differ slightly from that reported by the Nova Scotia Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture. It should also be noted that Statistics Canada’s export data does not include Nova Scotia mink production as an international export. It is therefore not included in this data set.

Changes to the indicator, baseline, or target:

  • The baseline number from the Report of the Nova Scotia Commission on Building our New Economy was corrected for error.
  • The target was adjusted to be a doubling over the revised baseline.
  • Contextual numbers were removed from the statement of the goal. This was done to keep the goal consistent in case of future historical revisions to the data.
