Northern Harvest Is First Salmon Company To Obtain Four-Star BAP Status

Northern Harvest Sea Farms – A Recognized Leader

December, 2014
Canada’s Northern Harvest Sea Farms Group is the world’s first salmon company to achieve four-star Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) status, denoting the company’s salmon processing plants, farm sites, hatcheries and feed mills are all BAP certified, the Global Aquaculture Alliance announced in December.

A four-star certification was achieved when Northern Harvest Smolt Limited in Stephenville, Newfoundland, earned BAP certification. It’s the first salmon hatchery to earn BAP certification since new BAP hatchery standards for finfish, crustaceans and mollusks were completed in September. (Previously, BAP hatchery standards existed only for shrimp.)

“Congratulations to the management of Northern Harvest on attaining hatchery, feed mill, farm and processing plant certification to the BAP standards. It’s the first company to achieve BAP four-star status for salmon, and this is a tribute to the company’s leadership,” said GAA Executive Director Wally Stevens.
