Community Outreach

We have a variety of educational resources available for classrooms, career expos and community events. We’ll do a classroom reading of The Farm on the Sea, perform an Atlantic salmon dissection for your science class or speak to your group about Atlantic salmon farming and its many career options! We’re happy to chat with you to accommodate the needs of your event.


The Farm on the Sea

Have you ever wondered how farmed salmon are grown? The Farm on the Sea book and accompanying website takes you on a journey through the full life cycle of a farmed Atlantic salmon. Our narrator Sunny, a rare blue salmon, is your guide from 
the hatchery to the harvest.

Teachers will find many suggested teaching and learning activities that can be used with The Farm on the Sea to address multiple New Brunswick and Atlantic Canada curriculum outcomes for Grades K-5.

Career Days.

We love talking to students of all ages about careers in salmon farming! We’re happy to participate in Career Expos but we can also visit individual classrooms. We will tailor our presentations to any age group and have a variety of materials to bring, including a real farmed Atlantic salmon that is always a hit with students.

Available resources:

  • Virtual headsets so students can see what it’s like on an ocean farm (aimed at Gr. 6-12)
  • Performing an Atlantic salmon dissection for science classes (both in-person and virtual)
  • Hands-on activities like rope tying
  • Aquaculture professionals to speak in-person or virtually
  • Giveaways like stickers
