Annual BC Shellfish & Seafood Festival Unites Local & International Participants

Moving into the weekend, the BC Salmon Farmers Association hosted several farm tours for 46 international buyers, 13 BC Seafood Expo delegates, and 8 international media representatives. All groups were treated to a salmon BBQ lunch, as part of their “west coast” experience. In addition, the Association hosted two sold out public tours with 10 participants on each tour. Due to the popular demand, additional public tours are scheduled for June 17, June 30, July 21 and August 11.

There is no better way to celebrate Seafood Month than being a part of the BC Shellfish & Seafood Festival. We appreciate the support of our members and volunteers who contributed (and are continuing to contribute) to the success of this year’s involvement in the festival. We would like to recognize Cermaq Canada, Marine Harvest Canada, Creative Salmon, Grieg Seafood BC, Golden Eagle Group, Lois Lake Steelhead and Hardy Buoys. In addition, the Association would also like to recognize our non-member partners: Wines of British Columbia, Pentlatch Seafoods, Fanny Bay Oysters, Salt Spring Island Mussels, Northern Divine Aquafarms and Discover Comox Valley. Thanks to everyone for helping us make the festival a success.
