Sustainable Blue is a land-based aquaculture facility located in Centre Burlington, Hants County, Nova Scotia. We grow Atlantic salmon using a proprietary water treatment technology which emits zero waste back to the environment. Our farm is comprised of both freshwater and saltwater buildings, where we raise our salmon from egg to market weight. The farm operates 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Sustainable Blue is fully committed to clean and responsible aquaculture practices which leave behind only a minimal footprint on the local environment and ecology. We are an actively expanding company, and are therefore looking to add multiple passionate and dedicated individuals to our diverse team of land-based fish farmers.
