Annual Survey of the Aquaculture Industry (AQUA)
Gross output of establishment, value
Gross output refers to the total operating revenue plus or minus the change in the value of the inventory of goods; it can also be expressed as the sum of product inputs and gross value added (at factor cost).
Establishment refers to the level at which accounting data required to measure production is available (principal inputs, revenues, salaries and wages). The establishment, as a statistical unit, is defined as the most homogeneous unit of production for which the business maintains accounting records from which it is possible to assemble all the data elements required to compile the full structure of the gross value of production (total sales or shipments, and inventories), the cost of materials and services, and labour and capital used in production.
The data for this variable are reported using the following measurements:
- Canadian dollar at current prices
- Aquaculture economic statistics, value added account Table: 003-0003
