AgriMarine, Safeway partner
AgriMarine Holdings on Monday announced that it signed an memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Califonia-based retailer Safeway.
The agreement establishes a framework allowing Safeway to perform due diligence on Pacific salmon from AgriMaine’s closed-containment fish farms in Campbell River, British Columbia, should the retailer source fish from the operation.
The salmon are raised in floating, solid-wall closed-containment systems developed by AgriMarine as a sustainable alternative to net pen salmon farming.
“We have received positive initial feedback from Safeway, who share our vision of making positive contributions for our oceans by changing the way salmon are farmed, and feel that consumers will respond favorably to having sustainable farmed salmon options,” said AgriMarine CEO Richard Buchanan.
