You Can Tour Salmon Farms On Passamaquoddy Bay

The Atlantic Canada Fish Farmers Association is hosting free guided tours of salmon farms this Sunday on Passamaquoddy Bay.

It's part of the Province's Open Farm Day 2011 and boat tours will leave at 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. from the Back Bay Wharf.

Pamela Parker of the Atlantic Canada Fish Farmers Association says the response has been very positive over the last few years.
Free barbecued salmon will be served and industry representatives can answer questions about the salmon aquaculture industry.

Parker says few people realize that more than 50 per cent of the seafood we eat comes from farms. You must reserve their space by Thursday at noon, call 755-3526 or email
