Marine Harvest Canada is the first farmed salmon producer in British Columbia to achieve three-star Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification.
The premier status was attained on July 3, when the company's Port Hardy processing facility was certified to the BAP Seafood Processing standard.
The new certification complements the Salmon Farm and Feed Mill certification that Marine Harvest Canada (MHC) and its fish feed manufacturer, Skretting Canada, received in 2012 which "guarantees our customers a continuous supply of BAP threestar certified product" states MHC Sustainability Programs Director, Clare Backman.
