KUTALA means salmon in the language of the 'Namgis people. TERRA means land. And KUTERRA means salmon from the land.
KUTERRA is also a business, fully owned by the 'Namgis First Nation, and supported in different ways by people and groups locally and internationally.
The KUTERRA mission is to bring the most environmentally sound, safe and healthy farmed salmon to people who care about the food they eat and serve to their families.
This mission unites the 'Namgis First Nation, project partner SOS Marine Conservation Foundation, funder and advisor Tides Canada and seafood distributor Albion Fisheries.
We chose to start the KUTERRA farm to show that Land Raised™ salmon is the future of sustainable salmon farming. It's the way to keep wild salmon and the waters they live in separate from farming, and the way to grow the best quality farmed fish.
Our farm is located on Northern Vancouver Island, a kilometre from the ocean. Our farm team has years of international training and expertise in raising many different species of fish, and is excited to show the world our KUTERRA Atlantic salmon.
PORTLAND, Maine | June 3, 2019 – Emergent Holdings and Kuterra LP have agreed on an offer that could give the US investor a majority stake in the British Columbia-based pioneer of growing Atlantic salmon on land.
