Salmon farmers help vessel in distress

October 3, 2016 - Campbell River, B.C.

Several times a year Marine Harvest’s salmon farmers are called upon to rescue mariners along the British Columbian coast. They’re always happy to help out and ensure the safety of fellow water users. Below is a little thank you from two boaters who recently had to call upon Okisollo farm:

We wanted to send you a message of thanks to your wonderful staff at Okisollo.  Our boat broke down on its maiden voyage very close to the farm. We were able to use the kicker and make it to dock. The staff came out to greet us and told us they would help if we couldn’t get in touch with anyone else.  After calling the coast guard we were unable to get help from any one. Your staff came and checked on us a few times and when we found no other help they kindly offered us the assistance needed. We offered to pay for fuel or give them a bottle of wine as a thank you and both offers were politely declined.  You have a great group of people working the farm and we are deeply appreciative of the excellent help your staff provided us.

Sincerely, Renee Desautels and Kris Cann
