Local salmon farmers ready to welcome the public

There are many questions about salmon farming in BC – and many answers ready at weekly farm tours, kicking off June 16.

The BC Salmon Farmers Association’s annual farm tour program is ready to begin, with public visits to local farms scheduled each Thursday from June 16 to Sept. 15.

The BCSFA and its members started the tour program five years ago as a way to provide more information to the general public. Tours depart from Discovery Launch Water Taxis in Campbell River at 9 a.m. and last four hours. To reserve a spot, phone (250) 286-1636 ext. 224.
