Kitasoo seafoods holds six salmon farm tenures on behalf of the community, currently leased and operated by Marine Harvest Canada through a protocol agreement. These farms provide over 20 full time year round jobs for community members.
There is a protocol agreement in place that has strict environmental sustainability requirements and includes significant independent environmental monitoring by Kitasoo Fisheries (over and above monitoring provided to other government agencies) regarding sea lice levels on wild salmon, contaminant sampling of wild resources used by locals, and biodiversity impacts near farms. Continued operations by Marine Harvest Canada depend on environment performance of the farms to the satisfaction of Kitasoo/Xai’xais Nation.
Kitasoo Aquafarms is always looking for more employees.
