What does the future of salmon farming look like? CBC’s The National features the ‘Namgis First Nation’s Kuterra project, funded in part by Tides Canada through our Salmon Aquaculture Innovation Fund. The Kuterra project, based on northern Vancouver Island, produces Atlantic salmon in land-based tanks. The project is designed to assess the technical, biological, and economic feasibility of land-based closed containment aquaculture as an alternative to rearing fish in the ocean, which better protects wild salmon and the marine environment.
Program Lead Julie Price shares lessons from developing a theory of change for the Northern Manitoba Food, Culture, and Community Collaborative in concert with large group of northern community members, advisors, funders, and partner organizations.
