Low-carbon and high-sustaining farming

No other kind of farming is so low-carbon and high-sustaining

Salmon-farming helps Canadians fight climate change and reach our greenhouse gas emissions goals.

Salmon farmers are also responsible and innovative. They’re constantly finding new ways to reduce their already low impact on the environment. Indeed, Canada's salmon-farmers are some of the most successful in the world, using advanced containment technologies, feeding systems, net cleaning and wastewater processing.

Canada’s opportunity is its ocean opportunity. Working with nature is the way forward – where the fish thrive and communities can grow. But try to move our salmon farms, and those environmental benefits, those jobs, those secure and thriving communities ……will move out of Canada. Just like that. Just like they’ve done in the past. Just like they’ve done elsewhere.
