Value of farm-raised salmon climbing fast, industry report says

Recommended reading from the Vancouver Sun: Between 2013 and 2016, the value of farmed fish in BC rose by 37 per cent. Global demand for salmon has increased while supply has been curtailing. This has enabled the industry to create 5,682 jobs, with Atlantic salmon representing 90 per cent of the province’s total aquaculture production. Although farmed fish are BC’s largest agricultural export at roughly $550 million a year, the aquaculture industry must create ways to be environmentally sustainable, respecting First Nations rights, while supporting jobs for British Columbians.
