New Year Brings New Members for BC Salmon Farmers Association10 January 2013
CANADA - The BC Salmon Farmers Association is welcoming the new year with the addition of four new dynamic and diverse members.
Four companies were accepted as members just in time for 2013, adding Campbell River Netloft (Associate member), Canada Cryogenetics Services, Omega Pacific Hatchery and EuroPharma Inc. (Sustaining members) to the group of committed suppliers to BC’s important salmon farmers represented by the BCSFA.
“Bringing together people from throughout the business is important for us to continue to build a sustainable, cohesive and progressive farm community,” said David Minato, Member and Community-Relations Co-ordinator for the BC Salmon Farmers Association.
These new members bring valuable additional perspectives to the BCSFA family, and will also benefit from being part of a shared voice in the province’s finfish aquaculture sector.
“Our work –building the business, informing the public, innovating and progressing through co-operation – is strengthened by the addition of new members. We’re really happy to have these four new friends aboard,” said Mary Ellen Walling, Executive Director, BCSFA.
The BCSFA was established in 1984 and is based in Campbell River, the heart of BC’s salmon aquaculture sector. To learn more about the BCSFA’s ongoing work with its members visit www.salmonfarmers.org/our-members-1.
