The CBC article Farming salmon on land is possible, project suggests discusses the Namgis First Nations’ closed containment salmon farm – the first “in North America to grow Atlantic salmon on a commercial scale in a completely land-based aquaculture system.”

“It’s no longer possible to say that recirculation aquaculture systems … are not possible for Atlantic salmon, because we’re living proof that is [not] the case,” says Jackie Hildering, community liaison for the Namgis closed-containment project.

    Closed containment salmon farming away from the wild salmon and coastal water needs to be done to insure the wild salmon population! This gives me hope!
