Innovation & Technology Report

Since its inception in the late 1960s, BC’s salmon farming industry has followed an ongoing, orderly transition toward greater environmental stewardship by implementing cutting-edge technologies and innovations.

The BC salmon farming industry’s high standard of environmental responsibility has been recognized by multiple independent, global environmental certification systems. Since the first BC Salmon Aquaculture Innovation and Technology Report in 2019, the industry has continued its transition toward technologies and innovations that will reduce environmental impacts even further.

These new technologies and innovations are being implemented at the hatchery, grow-out and processing phases of the farm-raised salmon production cycle.
