Marine Harvest & Klemtu
Look out Harlem Globetrotters! Each year, the staff at Marine Harvest take on the Kitasoo Kings basketball team in Klemtu, British Columbia, Canada. Yes, the staff always lose (by a lot!), but they also raise a lot of money during the game to help the Kings travel to Prince Rupert to play in the All Native Tournament. So, I guess you could say it's a win/lose/win! (4:41)
Marine Harvest Canada and Kitasoo Seafoods recently celebrated ten years of partnership in Klemtu, British Columbia, Canada. This remote coastal village farms and processes over 10 million pounds of fresh salmon each year. (2:31)

Quinsam River Pinks 2009
In 2009, the Campbell River and Quinsam River had record returns of pink salmon. At last count, an estimated 800,000 pink salmon returned, which is the highest return on record for this river system.
Campbell River is simply living up to it's name as "The Salmon Capital Of The World"!
The excellent salmon returns echo other Vancouver Island rivers such as the Nanaimo and Quatse rivers.
The Broughton Archipelago (near Port McNeill) was so over run with pink salmon, that a commercial seine and gill net fishery was opened in the area (Area 12) by late August 2009.
Colour of Salmon
Salmon is one of the world's healthiest foods, high in Omega 3 oils and easily recognized by it's beautiful pinkish/red colour. But how do salmon get to be this color? This informative video explains how salmon receive beta-carotenes in their diet which naturally turns salmon flesh pinkish/red. (1:08)
Wild salmon populations have varied significantly, while BC's salmon farms continue to operate consistently. To us, that indicates there's a lot more to talk about when we're investigating the causes of our wild salmon decline. To those still trying to blame salmon farms, we thought we'd let the facts speak for themselves. When 35 million Sockeye return, maybe it's time to rethink what we think.
