Statement on DFO’s decision to phase out salmon farms in the Discovery Islands

 

After consultations with First Nations in the Discovery Islands, today Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, announced the move to phase out salmon farms in the Discovery Islands by 2022. This may affect our one farm out of the 20 that we operate in BC.

We know that these changes are the results of First Nations voicing their concerns.

We have heard these concerns and will continue to listen and work hard every day to improve in the areas required.

Our goal is to be the salmon producer that has earned the trust of Rights Holders in the traditional territories where we farm.
