A pair of Port Hardy teams stacked up well in the 17th annual B.C. Aquaculture Slo-pitch Tournament last week.

A pair of Port Hardy teams stacked up well against the competition last week in the 17th annual B.C. Aquaculture Slo-pitch Tournament in Campbell River.

The Stray Katz, sponsored by Marine Harvest Canada, were runners-up in the A final in the tourney, which drew 10 clubs with ties to the aquaculture industry. The Katz fell to Campbell River’s Maniacs in the A final.

Something Fishy, another Marine Harvest squad from Port Hardy, won the B final with a win over Campbell River’s Slammin’ at Willow Point Park July 7.

Erin Klatt of Something Fishy was awarded the female MVP trophy and teammate Dan Christianson was male MVP.

The tourney was hosted by Positive Aquaculture Awareness and featured a fundraising barbecue of farmed salmon, donated by Mainstream Canada, for participants and spectators.

“The slo-pitch tournament is another great event that brings our entire industry including both salmon farming companies and suppliers, to one venue for a fun-filled weekend” said Cory Percevault, President of Positive Aquaculture Awareness.
