The BC Salmon Farmers Association was established in 1984, and its initial purpose was to coordinate the distribution of the very limited supply of salmon eggs that were available at the time. Since then, both the industry and the association have changed dramatically.
The BCSFA is a forum for communication and cooperation within the salmon farming sector, and the focal point for liaison between the industry and government. The association works to provide public information on salmon farming and to coordinate industry-wide activities such as the BCSFA Code of Practice, research activities, and various committees and community events.
