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.
For many years, Tides Canada has been publishing detailed lists of grants in our online annual reports. This spring, as part of our ongoing commitment to transparency, we are building on that practice by committing to publish our grants as open data and are increasing the frequency of our reporting by publishing grants listings on a quarterly basis.
