Grieg Seafood Canada has New De-licer to Put to Work

Many companies in Canada had to pivot to stay alive and made deft moves through the pandemic of Covid-19 in 2020, and one of those companies is Walcan Seafood of Heriot Bay, B.C.. They process and market fresh seafood from Quadra Island, beside Campbell River, B.C.. 
     They deliver fresh and frozen fish and prawns and seafood products directly to customers on Vancouver Island and Greater Vancouver. Walcan Seafood switched to including direct sales to customers, expanding from purely processing and shipping seafood, and they added a Red Seal Chef and menu to the online business.

The pressure we've put on wild salmon has created serious management challenges, according to John Paul Fraser, Executive Director of the B.C. Salmon Farmers Association. Fraser is familiar with the subject of managing west coast salmon, "I worked for Hon. David Anderson in the mid-1990s when he was the Minister Responsible for Department of Fisheries and Oceans." Fraser notes Anderson was from Victoria and uniquely able to move the focus of Canadian fisheries management from east to west coast at a time when it was required to do so.

Fish Safe BC’s core programs provide fishermen with relevant safety training either on their own vessels or in their community. Focus remains on the Safest Catch Program and outreach to the smaller boat fleet. 


GOLD RIVER, BC – Feb. 28, 2022 - The expansion of Grieg Seafood BC Ltd.’s (Grieg’s) Gold River Hatchery project, known as the RAS 34 Project, is nearing completion, and in mid-February the project team celebrated reaching the first of three milestones signaling the end of the project is near.  "We are excited to share that the tanks within the new hatchery facility are being filled with water. This is a huge achievement and allows the focus to shift from overall construction to what we do best at Grieg, which is raise beautiful, healthy salmon for Canadians, and provide a growing global demand for nutritious, sustainable, protein. In total, the project represents an investment of over $25 million and the creation of almost 60 fulltime site positions at the peak of construction.
