Global demand for BC salmon at record levels
British Columbia (B.C.), Canada, set a new record for exports of farm-raised Atlantic salmon last year and is on track to best the performance in 2016.

China is now B.C.’s second most important market next to the United States, which is historically the sector’s primary export market.
