Tofino-based farm-raised salmon producer Creative Salmon has achieved all the requirements set by the Canadian Organic Aquaculture Standard.

This firm, located on the west coast of Vancouver Island, has been farming Pacific chinook (kng) salmon using sustainable methods for many years.

“We are thrilled to be a leader in organic aquaculture,” says Tim Rundle, Creative Salmon’s General Manager. “Consumers are looking for organic product. Creative Salmon is proud to offer an organic product backed by a made-in-Canada standard.”

As required by the organic standard, the firm explained that their specimens have a low density environment occupying less than one per cent of the volume of their pen, their sites and nets are cleaned and maintained by power washing with sea water or by exposing them to natural ultraviolet from the sun. Besides, their market fish are free of antibiotics and genetically modified organisms.

The firm stated they raise Pacific species in the Pacific Ocean, which contributes to make their fish perfectly adapted to the sea conditions, including a natural tolerance to sea lice.

As to their fish feed, it is composed of sustainably-sourced fishmeal and fish oil, which also include certified organic wheat as a binder and a naturally sourced pigment derived from a yeast.

“Our fish are fed a diet as close to their natural one as possible in a farm setting,” remarked Rundle. And he added: “Our major supplier, Taplow Feeds, is a valued partner in our organic process and is also certified to the organic standard.”

The organic certification also applies to Creative Salmon’s Sea Spring Hatchery as well as Lions Gate Fisheries’ processing plants in both Tofino and Delta.
