BAP for salmon processor

Canadian salmon processor, Walcan Seafood Ltd, has achieved a Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification.

The Global Aquaculture Alliance BAP certification sees Walcan Seafood’s processing plant on Quadra Island, British Columbia, joining the BAP-certified farms that produce Skuna Bay Salmon, which are owned and operated by Grieg Seafood BC Ltd.

The first four farms that produce Skuna Bay Salmon earned BAP certification back in December 2011.

Dave Mergle, director, Skuna Bay Salmon, said: ““We have always said that we are committed to meeting and upholding the Best Aquaculture Practices standards in all Skuna Bay Salmon. We share the same values and passion for farming and sharing healthful, sustainable salmon.”

Skuna Bay raises its salmon in Nootka Sound off the coast of Vancouver Island. Patented innovations in packaging and an exclusive method of inspecting, selecting, hand cleaning and packing the fish ensure the salmon’s freshness is preserved as it is delivered from the ocean to kitchens across North America.

Established in 1974 as herring bait processor, Walcan Seafood is now the exclusive processor of all of Grieg Seafood BC and Skuna Bay Salmon. In addition to custom processing for other seafood companies, Walcan Seafood processes its own mussels, oysters, clams, scallops, herring, sardines, spot prawns, roe, wild salmon and canned seafood products.
