Based in Gold River, B.C., Scott is owner operator of Nootka Air, which helps shoot parts and people out to salmon farms along the coast. Scott took over the local small business in 2016, while he’s out flying clients around North Vancouver Island, his wife, Angela looks after the office. Small businesses like Scott’s in-directly rely on a strong salmon farming industry.
“A strong salmon farming industry is important for my business. We don’t just fly hikers around to islands like Nootka, we really rely on resource businesses overall. Like forestry, and of course salmon farming.”
