Guest: Linda Sams, sustainable development director, Cermaq Canada

Linda Sams has witnessed the evolution of salmon aquaculture on Canada’s West Coast, having worked in the industry for 35 years. In this episode, Sams provides a narrative on the history of salmon farming in British Columbia – how it has grown from a community of start-ups into British Columbia’s largest agricultural export – and her insights on a sustainable future for salmon aquaculture.

Correction: In the interview, Linda Sams, mentioned “Roger and Linda May” of Royal Pacific Sea Farms. In fact, she was referring to “Tom” and Linda May.
