Industry Position Statements

CAIA Position: Genetically Modified Salmon

Canadian salmon farmers are world leaders in healthy, sustainable and responsible aquaculture and are proud to produce healthy and fresh salmon. We do not farm or sell GM farmed salmon, and we are not growing or researching GM salmon.

Canadian farmed salmon, which is farmed on both coasts, is in high demand in Canada and abroad.

We are committed to sustainable and responsible best practices and a science based management approach which already produces the highest quality fresh salmon.  

We have no plans to change our farming practices.
