Feasibility assessment for a shellfish aquaculture operation (hatchery and grow-out) in Beecher Bay B.C.

Resource Description: 

Beecher Bay First Nation (BBFN) is taking systematic approach to understanding the aquaculture opportunity available in Beecher Bay and how it may fit into their future economic development plans. They have commissioned a number of studies in support of this goal. The first report by Cross (2015) identified the species and spatial extent of potential aquaculture opportunities. The second report (Tillapaugh 2017) undertook a pre-feasibility assessment to determine if a shellfish hatchery was a viable supporting element. This (third) study was commissioned to determine the feasibility for an integrated shellfish company (hatchery and ocean farm site(s)).
