Jeremy Dunn, executive director at the BC (British Columbia) Salmon Farmers Association, is leaving the association to join Marine Harvest Canada.

Starting 1 May, Dunn will replace Ian Roberts, Marine Harvest’s director of public affairs. Roberts is transferring to Marine Harvest Scotland.

Dunn led BCSFA’s five-person team in Campbell River, British Columbia, Canada, for the past four years. The association’s search for a new executive director is starting right away.

“The past four years with the BCSFA has been an incredible experience and introduced me to the talented women and men working in B.C. and the global seafood sector,” Dunn said. “This experience has led me to want to become involved on a deeper level, and I’m excited to join Marine Harvest.” 

British Columbia'ss farmed salmon, the province’s top agricultural export, generates more than CAD 1.5 billion (USD 1.2 billion, EUR 980 million) towards the B.C. economy. It also accounts for more than 6,600 jobs. The BC Salmon Farmers Association represents 52 businesses and organizations throughout the value chain of finfish aquaculture in British Columbia.
