The New Brunswick Salmon Growers, on behalf of local salmon farmers, once again participated in the 2010 Open Farm Day on September 19th. Open farm day is an Atlantic wide aquaculture/agriculture awareness event that lets people learn more about local food production.
On Sunday September 19th the NBSGA held complimentary boat tours from their Limekiln Service Centre visiting several salmon cage sites in the area. Pamela Parker, NBSGA Executive Director and Betty House, NBSGA Research & Development Coordinator were onboard to provide an overview of the salmon aquaculture industry and to answer any questions about the sector.
Another highlight to the day was a salmon BBQ compliments of Northern Harvest Seafarms Inc., True North Salmon and the New Brunswick Salmon Growers Association along with hot dogs from the St. George Save Easy.
Almost 100 people enjoyed a beautiful day on the Bay of Fundy including people from Texas, Ontario, and around the Province.
