Aquaculture for all

Creative Salmon Manager Off To Australia

CANADA - The general manager of a Tofino-based salmon farming is taking a job Down Under.

Spencer Evans, general manager of Creative Salmon, recently signed a three-year contract as a regional manager with the Australian aquaculture company Tassal Pure Tasmania.

Taking over as general manager for Creative Salmon will be Tim Rundell, the company’s senior biologist.

“The politics around salmon farming in British Columbia is tiresome but that’s not the reason why I’m going,” said Evans. “The main reason was just to provide another life experience for my son, now 15. It’s kind of the last chance for a family adventure.

“It was just an opportunity I didn’t want to turn down.”
