AGE: Old Enough
REGION:Beautiful Nootka Sound
# YEARS AS A SALMON FARMER: 12 great years
WHY YOU BECAME A SALMON FARMER: Being a salmon farmer was a convenience at first, I needed a job. If I had known how fulfilling the work was, I would have gone to school and pursed a career in aquaculture years ago. I would still be salmon farming now
WHAT YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT FARMING SALMON IN THE OCEAN: Having the opportunity of working outdoors in some of the best waters in the world, while growing a viable resource for people to eat.
FAVORITE WAY TO EAT SALMON:All ways; raw, poached, barbequed, open fire, and baked. There isn’t any way I wouldn’t eat salmon!
WHAT YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT: Family, friends, co-workers, and sports of all kinds. I believe that what I do for a living helps people. It’s a great feeling.
BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU FACE DAILY: Being away from my family. It helps that I am working at something I love and having an understanding family
BEST MEMORY: The first time my family came out to stay in camp, which gave me the opportunity to show them what I do for a living.
THING YOU ARE MOST PROUD ABOUT: That I have had the opportunity of working with Skuna Bay, growing some of the best fish in the world. I am proud of “our farm” and all the work that is done to produce a great product. It is a team effort.
