Salmon farming provides thousands of stable, year-round jobs in coastal communities throughout BC

Jobs in Salmon Farming

While BC’s farm-raised salmon is in demand around the world, the focus for our members is also very local: providing thousands of stable, year-round jobs in coastal communities throughout BC and largely on Vancouver Island. For many people, it’s an opportunity for a challenging career and an excellent quality of life in a small and close-knit community located in a spectacularly beautiful part of the world.

The range of career options within the industry is wide, and working conditions are equally varied: from office work as a manager or administrator, to often very physically challenging outdoor work of various types. Scientists and technicians, veterinarians and fish health specialists, farm and hatchery workers, boat captains and deckhands, truck drivers, workers in manufacturing and processing facilities, administrators, marketers and transportation sector employees: all are part of the process of producing quality-farmed salmon and getting it to market.
