Steelhead Farm – Canada
In 2013, AgriMarine acquired West Coast Fishculture (Lois Lake) Ltd. (WCFC), the premier supplier of Steelhead salmon in British Columbia. WCFC operated as a family-owned business since 1973 and with 30 years of farming experience, WCFC has built up a brand name that is recognized for its quality and sustainability. WCFC conforms to United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization’s Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, while its Lois Lake Steelhead brand is Ocean Wise™ recommended by the Vancouver Aquarium as an ocean-friendly seafood choice. WCFC is AgriMarine’s flagship production site in Canada.
Lois Lake offers an optimal sheltered site with excellent water quality that can support the installation of our proprietary AgriMarine System™ rearing tanks, where we will focus on accelerated crop turnover and demonstrate the performance benefits of our semi-closed containment technology. Both AgriMarine and WCFC are committed to offering sustainable fish products that adhere to best practices.
Salmon Farm – China
The Company is currently rearing China’s first and only floating closed containment Chinook/King salmon from Canadian ova. China offers the world’s largest growth market for salmon and the Company has the competitive advantage of a local, environmentally-sound production, providing the freshest salmon in the country. As a domestic producer, AgriMarine’s products are not subject to import tariffs, air freight charges or quarantine delays, often being able to ship to major cities within China 48 hours from harvest. The Canadian ova were selected for their high growth performance and are federally-certified and pathogen-free. The Benxi fish rearing facility is centrally located near the tier one cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
