As you may have heard, Cermaq Canada is currently investigating the possibility of expanding Atlantic salmon farming operations into Nova Scotia -specifically the Digby, Guysborough and Richmond areas. "Since we announced our intentions on April 3, 2019, we have started to reach out to local government, associations, groups and the Mi’kmaq of Nova Scotia," says Amy Jonsson, Communications specialist with Cermaq Canada in Campbell River, B.C..

"Our website www.HelloNovaScotia.ca continues to receive lots of traffic, and we would like to say thanks to everyone who has taken the time to visit the site." Readers interested in updates can sign up for notifications at the bottom of the home page. (By providing your email address, you will receive an email alert whenever new content is loaded onto the site. Cermaq promises not to use emails as part of a distribution list, and will never share your details.)

"In June, some of our team members travelled to the Chedabucto Bay and Digby regions to speak with local researchers, biologists, governments and associations. We have started to deploy sensors into waters in the identified areas of interest that will measure and collect real-time data of current speeds, wave action and water temperatures.

"We have also been collecting historical temperature and current information from regulators, government and research facilities as available. We are now starting to compile historic and sensor information to create a baseline of information which we will use moving forward as part of our feasibility work. We have not identified specific potential sites at this point as we are still working to establish a baseline for conditions and we will need to look at sea floor conditions as well."

Moving forward, when Cermaq is in the region, they will be letting residents know through signage. "We have sandwich boards which will be placed in the area where we will be working. If you have any questions, please give us a call to find out more about why we are in the area, what we are doing and how the work we are doing will be used moving forward. We will be looking to begin formal public engagement later this summer and will share more details as we begin to formalize a plan."

Cermaq is using feedback, which they are receiving now, to customize engagement for audiences, communities and interests. Jonsson says, "We want to talk to as many people as possible to ensure we are getting the full scope of opinions and information as we move along the Option process. So far, our engagement plans include the creation of community advisory committees in the regions of interest, community participation, door-to-door visits, open house meetings and continued monthly updates."

She says Cermaq is open to ideas though and appreciate any ideas or feedback you may have. Also, if you know of a group, association or club which would like more information, please contact Amy Jonsson, communications specialist at amy.jonsson@cermaq.com.
