St Andrews, N.B.-- The Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF) and The Conservation Fund Freshwater Institute (TCFFI) will jointly host an Atlantic Salmon Closed-Containment Workshop on April 29 and 30 at ASF's headquarters near St. Andrews, NB. It's the second such conference held at ASF that brings participants together to hear presentations and discuss the technology and operation of this increasingly-popular method of farming fish.

"We will have expertise in all aspects of land-based, closed containment systems from start-up costs and construction, fish health and welfare, organic and sustainability rankings, to marketing and promotion of the final product," says Jonathan Carr, ASF's Executive Director of Research and Environment. "We'll also be talking with suppliers and marketing experts including representatives from Sobeys and Loblaws."

Government representatives with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans have also been invited to attend the two-day conference, along with industry representatives who have a strong interest in closed-containment aquaculture.

Presenters will include Chief Bill Cranmer, from the Namgis First Nation Closed-Containment Project in British Columbia. Chief Cranmer will be speaking at the conference about his experience with growing Atlantic salmon on land. There will also be further updates on several ongoing closed-containment projects including presentations from Steve Summerfelt, from The Conservation Fund Freshwater Institute in West Virginia.

The previous workshop, held at ASF's headquarters , was filled to capacity. Organizers expect to register as many as 80 participants from across Canada, the United States and Europe for the April conference. Registration is currently available by invite only due to space limitations; however, arrangements are being made to offer some presentations via webinar.

Conference participants will also be provided with the opportunity to sample Atlantic salmon grown in a land-based, closed containment facility.

The Atlantic Salmon Federation is dedicated to the conservation, protection and restoration of wild Atlantic salmon and the ecosystems on which their well-being and survival depend. ASF has a network of seven regional councils (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Maine and Western New England). The regional councils cover the freshwater range of the Atlantic salmon in Canada and the United States.
