CANADA - The BC Salmon Farmers Association (BCFSA) and its members had a busy, encouraging and productive three days at the Boston International Seafood Show last week.

Mary Ellen Walling, Executive Director of the BCSFA, catches up with Ruth Salmon, head of the Canadian Aquaculture Industry Alliance at the Boston International Seafood Show last week.

The event, held each year, is North America’s largest seafood event, bringing together people involved at all stages of the industry.

Mary Ellen Walling, executive director of the BCSFA attended, and reports that there continues to be high demand for farmed salmon – and concern from buyers about sourcing enough it. People were also interested in learning more about the industry overall, keeping the Canadian Aquaculture Industry Alliance’s booth busy the entire show.

Mary Ellen was also asked to participate in a panel presentation about sustainable practices in aquaculture. It was a good chance for her to highlight the commitment of B.C.’s salmon farmers to sustainability and their continued efforts through research to find new ways of improving.

“It was great to meet with so many people who are enthusiastic about our product and interested to learn more about how we approach sustainability,” said Mary Ellen.

Along with the massive trade show, the Boston event also brought together many industry officials who were able to meet and catch up through a series of meetings.

“These shows are an important way to connect with our colleagues, our markets and our stakeholders – and the Boston one continued to be a success on all three fronts.”
