Outcome of Second Judicial Review Released

June 7, 2024

Phillips Arm Site


Today, Mowi Canada West, is disappointed to learn that we were not successful in the second judicial review of the federal government’s decision to not renew aquaculture licences in the Discovery Islands region, where we have sites located within the core traditional territory of the Laich-kwil-tach peoples.

The applicants in this judicial review were We Wai Kai and Wei Wai Kum First Nations, as well as Cermaq Canada, Grieg Seafood and Mowi Canada West. The application was heard in August 2023, six months after Minister Murray announced her decision and sixteen months after the Court overturned the initial decision.

Mowi Canada West will continue to focus on working within the broader transition framework and to support a responsible plan for the future of aquaculture in British Columbia.
