CANADA - A new website launched this week is designed to bring together salmon farmers from around the world, while educating the public about the benefits of this important industry.

The International Salmon Farmers Association (ISFA) revealed its new website, www.salmonfarming.org, in a co-operative launch by its members around the world.

Representatives from countries such as Norway, Scotland, Chile, United States and Canada have all contributed to this project.

"This is a great way for the international salmon farming community to connect with the general public and with each other," said Mary Ellen Walling, Executive Director, BC Salmon Farmers Association.

The website includes information about ISFA, its members and their information sites, development of the industry and the life cycle of farmed salmon,. It also includes the shared vision of these international salmon farming colleagues and a photo gallery of operations around the world.

"Salmon aquaculture is and will continue to be an important part of providing healthy protein for a growing world population," said Ms Walling.

"Working together to help people understand our business is a priority for all of us."

The International Salmon Farmers Association represents 11 associations from around the world committed to responsible farming, based on innovation and research, and environmental and social sustainability.
