Cermaq Canada launches trial of new innovative system in BC waters

Campbell River – The trial of the new Semi-Closed Containment System (SCCS) is officially underway with the successful stocking of young salmon, called smolts. The system is unique as it uses a patented material to form a barrier around the system, which eliminates lateral interaction between wild and farmed salmon, while providing additional benefits for the farmed populations. The SCCS trial is the first of its kind in Canada – but the system has been successfully trialed in Norwegian waters by Cermaq Norway.
