“You guys are blessed with the coastline and you have so much farmed shellfish.” Teresa Wat

“You guys are blessed with the coastline and you have so much farmed shellfish.” Teresa Wat. We do have a wonderful coastline, and we would like to keep it that way. While Teresa Wat Minister for International Trade and Minister Responsible for the Asia Pacific Strategy and Multiculturalism is going to promote Baynes Sound for more aquaculture, it was clear from VIU Deepbay’s “Baynes Sound Opinion Survey on Shellfish Aquaculture” that majority of the people surveyed agreed “There should be no more shellfish aquaculture in Baynes Sound”.

We need to have a large controlled study area free from aquaculture to understand the effects that aquaculture is already doing to our sound.

What we would like to keep Baynes Sound looking like.
