BAP Gains Northern Harvest As First Two-Star Salmon Operation

  (CANADA, 4/18/2012)

Certification of the Northern Harvest Sea Farms processing plant in St. George, New Brunswick, Canada, has established Northern Harvest as the Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) program's first "two-star" salmon operation.

The April 9 plant certification audit by Global Trust was preceded in March by BAP certification of Northern Harvest's Bar Island salmon farm in eastern Canada. Three additional Northern Harvest farms have applied for the certification.

Northern Harvest Sea Farms produce top quality farmed Atlantic salmon in an environmentally sound, responsible and sustainable manner

"The Global Aquaculture Alliance congratulates Northern Harvest on its second certification in as many months and appreciates its continued dedication to responsible aquaculture," GAA President George Chamberlain said. "This represents a 'next step' for not only Northern Harvest, but also the BAP program, which is striving to include more salmon operations as well as facilities for other species."

"This important achievement exemplifies our commitment toward responsible aquaculture and the long-term positive impacts it will have on the coastal communities within which we operate," Northern Harvest President Larry Ingalls said. "Our company's goal is to continue working toward certification of all of our salmon-farming operations -- from our new land-based hatchery to our farms, through to our processing and distribution facilities."

The Northern Harvest processing plant opened in 2007. It now offers a full range of salmon products, including fillets, steaks and portions. Over the past two years, plant capacity has been doubled, and there have been significant investments in state-of-the-art value-adding technologies, food safety initiatives and various efficiency improvements.

The company's salmon farms implement low stocking densities and eco-friendly diets to limit environmental impacts. Through proximity to major markets, Northern Harvest's company strategy is to deliver fresh, sustainably grown salmon as quickly and efficiently as possible.

BAP certification is based on the international Best Aquaculture Practices standards developed by the Global Aquaculture Alliance, the leading standards-setting organization for aquaculture seafood. For salmon and other major farmed species, BAP requires effective management of animal health, feed inputs, water quality and food safety. In a process that includes site inspections and in-depth audits, social responsibility and traceability are additional requirements.

Fish at Northern Harvest Sea Farms are fed a premium diet higher in Omega 3 and vitamins E and C which provides optimal colour and flavour 

About Northern Harvest Sea Farms

Northern Harvest Sea Farms is a family operated business with its origins dating back to 1985 when the Ingalls family began farming Atlantic salmon and trout in the Bay of Fundy.

The company's salmon farms implement low stocking densities

Focus on detail and quality, and a solid work ethic has allowed the company to become one of Canada’s largest aquaculture companies.

The company today is run by Larry and his brothers David and Neil. Northern Harvest Sea Farms has farming operations in New Brunswick and Newfoundland with over 250 employees. In 2007, the company opened a processing plant in St. George, New Brunswick offering a full range of products including fillets, steaks and portions. In addition to Atlantic salmon, the company processes trout, char and halibut.

As the company has grown it has continued to focus on product quality. Its main objective is to remain a recognized industry leader in both farming and processing.

About BAP

Best Aquaculture Practices is an international certification program based on achievable, science-based and continuously improved global performance standards for the entire aquaculture supply chain -- farms, hatcheries, processing plants and feed mills - that assure healthful foods produced through environmentally and socially responsible means.
