Farming salmon and supporting local communities
Alongside lush, green forests that grow all the way to the water's edge, Cermaq Canada works in cooperation with nature and local First Nation communities to grow Atlantic salmon on the east and west coasts of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
Cermaq Canada strives to work in cooperation with nature and Indigenous rights holders to grow sustainable Atlantic salmon on the east coast and west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
We farm Atlantic salmon in the cold, crisp waters in some of the most spectacular wilderness that Canada has to offer. Farm sites are carefully chosen against a long list of criteria, including ocean energy (waves), tidal currents, depth, wild salmon and other marine life’s habitats and migration routes as well as proximity to environmentally sensitive areas.
Currently, we have operations in the Broughton Archipelago, Discovery Islands, Clayoquot Sound and Barkley Sound.
