Marine Harvest Canada participated in CTV’s W5 program about salmon farming in September. The program will air on CTV on Saturday 14th October at 7pm.

On 11th September, CTV’s three person crew visited a Marine Harvest salmon farm in Okisollo Channel where they spoke to farm staff, viewed all aspects of a farm operation, and observed salmon feeding. W5 reporter Peter Akman interviewed Director of Public Affairs Ian Roberts at the Okisollo site. Interviews were also provided by First Nation businessmen Harold Sewid (Qwe Qwa Sot Em Faith Aquaculture) and James Walkus of James Walkus Fishing Company about their experience in both commercial wild fisheries and aquaculture.

On 20th September, Marine Harvest provided the W5 team with facts about our business and responses to allegations made by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and other interviewees. This document is publically available on our website here.
