Grieg Seafood BC is proud to support wild salmon enhancement programs and initiatives in BC
One of our top priorities is sustaining the coexistence of both wild and farmed salmon where we farm. This means protecting and supporting the five species of wild Pacific salmon in all life stages, from egg to spawning, as well as investing in our technology and practices to reduce our impact on wild salmon and the surrounding environment.
Not only are we improving our technology and practices every day to further this goal, but we’re also supporting wild salmon enhancement in the communities where we operate. Each year Grieg donates tens of thousands of dollars and equipment to salmon enhancement organizations in and around Vancouver Island.
This October, our Environmental Monitoring team participated in the Powell River Salmon Society’s Salmon Education Expo where we talked to hundreds of students about plankton – and how it can be either good or bad for salmon in the marine environment.
We are proud to support this great initiative, and from the looks on their faces, the kids enjoyed it too.
Many thanks to our friends at the Powell River Salmon Society for this great event.
