Salmon farming company, Mainstream Canada, has received two-star BAP certification from the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) for its Pacific National Processing plant in Tofino.

The company, which has already achieved BAP certification for a number of its farm sites, has become the first salmon farming company in British Columbia (BC), Canada, to achieve two-star certification.

Fernando Villarroel, Mainstream Canada’s managing director, said: “We are very proud of this achievement. It shows our commitment to leading the way in sustainable aquaculture practices on our farms and in our processing facilities. This new processing plant certification shows we are committed to the highest standards in producing salmon for our customers that is fresh, food safe and nutritious.”

The Pacific National processing plant produces fresh, head-on, gutted farmed Atlantic salmon, the majority of which is delivered to customers in western USA. In 2012, the plant produced more than 14,000 tonnes of salmon.

Mainstream Canada is one of the largest salmon farming companies in BC, producing around 25,000 tonnes of fresh, farmed Atlantic salmon, per year.
