Land salmon a hockey hit

Salmon from the Kuterra land-based salmon farm were featured at a gala hockey celebration Monday at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

PORT McNEILL—Salmon from the Kuterra land-based salmon farm were featured on the menu centrepiece at a gala hockey celebration Monday at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

The Hockey Canada Foundation selected Kuterra premium salmon to serve to its guests at the 2014 Celebrity Classic Gala.

More than 900 people attended the gala, including Canada’s gold medalists in Olympic and international hockey, hockey greats, and notable Canadians from across the country.

“We’re honoured that Kuterra land-raised salmon was chosen to be part of this prestigious event,” says Garry Ullstrom, Kuterra’s CEO. “And we’re thrilled that Kuterra Salmon has been recognized as meeting the standards of excellence being celebrated this evening.”

The Hockey Canada Foundation Celebrity Classic is an annual event that honours Canadian hockey heritage and success, and raises money to support Canada’s minor hockey players.

“The gala dinner is being held to celebrate high-performance athletes. So it’s fitting that the Hockey Canada Foundation is serving one of the cleanest, healthiest and most flavourful Atlantic salmon available,” says Guy Dean, vice president of Kuterra’s marketing partner, Albion Fisheries.

Kuterra Salmon are grown with no pesticides, antibiotics or hormones. They’re raised on land on northern Vancouver Island, at a world-leading closed containment salmon farm 100 per cent owned by the ‘Namgis First Nation.
