The BCSGA was delighted to host Minister Lana Popham on a two-day tour of farms in Baynes Sound, around Quadra Island and in Okeover. Thank you to Keith Reid of Stellar Bay Shellfish, Yves Perreault of Littlewing Oysters and Steve Pocock of Sawmill Bay Shellfish for being our tour guides. This was an amazing opportunity to share information, learn about farm operations and speak to issues and opportunities directly with farmers in each of the areas we visited.
Thanks to Minister Lana Popham and the Ministry of Agriculture for supporting our farmers with the Oyster Recovery Fund. And thanks to Minister Claire Trevena for joining us on the Quadra/Read Island tour.
