British Columbia Salmon Farming

Conservation Strategy Fund is providing economic analysis to a joint initiative of the Coastal Alliance for Aquaculture Reform (CAAR) and the fish-farming firm, Marine Harvest Canada (MHC). This cooperative venture seeks to understand the financial and environmental costs and benefits of different approaches to raising salmon in the coastal province of British Columbia. CSF’s team includes consulting economists Glenn Jenkins, George Kuo and Leonard Leung, of Queens University in Ontario. Findings of the analysis will be important to both the company and CAAR members as they pursue environmental quality in the context of ever-growing seafood market.

Aquicultura de Salmão na Colúmbia Britânica

A aquicultura de salmão em mar aberto é um componente estabelecido na economia de diversas regiões da costa da Colúmbia Britânica. Não obstante a prevalência da aquicultura de salmão nessas regiões, essa indústria continua sob a necessidade de uma avaliação mais minuciosa. Ambientalistas e biólogos conservacionistas preocupam-se com os impactos da aquicultura net-pen do salmão. Líderes comunitários e defensores encontram-se preocupados com a sustentabilidade econômica da aquicultura do salmão e seus impactos nas economias rurais, especialmente naquelas economias que tradicionalmente dependem da colheita do salmão selvagem.
