SAYWARD (Campbell River), BRITISH COLUMBIA – Marine Harvest Canada takes salmon inside a MegaDome
Marine Harvest, a leading salmon aquaculture company in BC, produces one-fifth of the world’s farm-raised salmon at facilities in Norway, Scotland, Canada, Chile, Ireland and the Faroes.
Operating several facilities on Vancouver Island, including a major operation in Seaward, (north of Campbell River, BC) the company contracted with BuildWorks to construct a 14,000 square foot MegaDome to cover existing fish tanks and a new water filtration system.
It is an important development for a company that already employs 500 people to produce 40,000 tonnes of sustainable Atlantic farm-raised salmon each year in British Columbia alone.
The MegaDome features an opaque silver roof cover for photo-periodic control, and an interior dividing wall to separate the fish tanks from its state-of-the-art water treatment equipment.
The project was completed by BuildWorks in July 2013.
