The facility hatches and grows shellfish such as scallops to an adequate size after which they are grown along the North Coast of BC. Shellfish, and more specifically scallop, farming is considered a sustainable fishing practice, which is in line with MDC's commitment to the sustainability of its economic activities. When compared to other types of fin-fish aquaculture, shellfish farming has minimal environmental impact.
