A collaboration of the Pacific coast conservation community, First Nations, and commercial fishers works towards developing a salmon farming industry that is safe for humans and the environment in British Columbia, the world's 4th largest producer of farmed salmon. Aims to protect against destructive fish farming practices and to encourage the fish farming industry to adopt new technology, change to environment-friendly practices and to respect local communities. January 2011 saw the installation of a first marine-based (floating) closed containment tank at Middle Bay, BC by Canada's biggest fish farmer. CAAR lobbied for federal support for this project and celebrates it "a significant milestone in the transition towards more sustainable salmon farming practices".
