Salmon farms in British Columbia have to adhere to the highest standards in regulations and monitoring, more so than restaurants health and safety measures.
Restaurants are given lenient warnings and fines for infractions that are potentially hazardous to the public’s health. If farmers do not stick to their high code of conduct their businesses will be shut down immediately.
British Columbia’s salmon farmers have pride, passion, respect for the environment, and unfailingly utter belief in sustainability, than most chefs can ever understand.
FOMO (fear of missing out) on new food trends is never an option for farmers.
The only trends salmon farmers follow are newer and better technology and newer and better science to ensure fish health, environmental protection, and future food supply.
Farming, more than any other business, is the bread and butter of our life now, and in the future.
This video is a mere glimpse into a day on a salmon farm.
