AgriMarine seals salmon supply agreement
AgriMarine Industries has signed a four-year agreement with a Californian food retailer for the supply of Chinook salmon, announced AgriMarine Holdings, a subsidiary of AgriMarine Industries.
The salmon is raised at the Middle Bay Sustainable Aquaculture Institute's (MBSAI) Campbell River rearing facility in British Columbia, utilising AgriMarine's environmentally sustainable rearing system.
The MBSAI project has been the recipient of contributions from AgriMarine, The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and Coast Sustainable Trust to support the development of clean technologies that will contribute to the strengthening of the environment.
The Middle Bay project has also received contributions from Sustainable Development Technology Canada, a not-for-profit foundation created by the Government of Canada.
