Salmon Habitat Restoration Program
Organic Ocean hosted a visit by SHaRP (Salmon Habitat Restoration Program) yesterday afternoon at False Creek Fishermen’s Wharf, by Granville Island. As part of our commitment to being a 100% sustainable company, Organic Ocean has adopted environmentally responsible fishing practices, but we are also taking on a variety of other environmental initiatives in an effort to maximize our positive impact.
One of SHaRP’s main goals is to raise awareness about the importance of maintaining healthy salmon habitat within our city and beyond. This is something Organic Ocean is closely aligned with, so we selected SHaRP as part of our 1% for the Planet initiative and have made a donation to their Program.
At the field trip yesterday, SHaRP got to witness hundreds of sockeye salmon come off our fishing boat and even got their hands dirty helping to unload the fish. We topped the day off with a BBQ salmon lunch for everyone.
