Our Story

Our people are connected to the coast.

Our coastal story starts with our foundation, and that’s our people. 600 to be exact.

It’s by day that our dedicated scientists study the marine environment to ensure the ocean’s eco-system is safe for all fish to grow up in, and operations teams works tirelessly to ensure the right people are in the right place at the right time, and client representatives ensure our locally grown product is entering the right markets here at home and around the world, and our aquaculture experts have their finger on the pulse of the newest technologies and innovations in the industry.

Then, when they return home our people transition into community leaders, helping to organize beach cleans and bottle drives, into auxiliary firefighters, helping to keep our North Vancouver Island community safe and thriving, into sports coaches, helping local soccer and hockey teams elevate to the next level, into loving parents, who care deeply about the future of not just their kids, but the entire community itself.

It’s from this foundation that our commitment to protecting the marine environment, that is so important to us, was born. Our people love the ocean, they love salmon, and recognize that by producing an alternative to wild salmon, we’re offsetting the stress being placed on stocks from climate change and other variables.

And in just the last decade, we’ve invested in North Vancouver Island communities, supporting about 140 different, volunteer based organizations and community groups every year. Quietly, and with purpose, we’ve worked to build relationships that matter, with local business owners, First Nations and Indigenous leaders, local governments, and so many more.

Our work is just getting started, we want to do even more. Never forgetting our foundation, but celebrating it. We’re proud to work on the coast, and be a member of the community. This is our coastal story, what’s yours?

And in just the last decade, we’ve invested in the North Vancouver Island Region, helping to support more than 140 community-based organizations. We’re proud of this and want to do even more.

Restoring Wild Salmon

We’ve donated both time and equipment totalling $125,000 to restore wild salmon through local North Vancouver Island stream-clean-up and salmon enhancement programs.

Building a Stronger Community

We’ve invested $250,000 to help support Port Hardy’s new Aquatic Centre, which will become a hub for families in the area.

Community Salmon Barbecue

At our yearly community salmon barbecues we’ve raised over $150,000 to donate to various charities across North Vancouver Island.

Investing in Youth

We support more than 44 different organizations that impact North Vancouver Island youth. From the Carihi Fly Fishing Club, the Campbell River Hospital Foundation to the Salmon Kings swim club.

Meal Donation Program

We donate thousands of meals of healthy salmon every year to local B.C. communities. Whether through our barbecue program or directly to charities like the Salvation Army in Campbell River.
