Annual Survey of the Aquaculture Industry (AQUA)
Gross value added (at factor cost) of establishment, value
Gross value added (at factor cost) refers to gross value added at market prices less any indirect taxes plus any subsidies. Gross value added is the value of output less the value of intermediate consumption.
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
