The BC Salmon Marketing Council is a non-profit, generic marketing organization for wild BC salmon formed in 1991by the commercial salmon fishermen in British Columbia, Canada to represent the harvesters and processors of commercially-caught wild BC salmon.


It is funded by the BC commercial fishermen and government sources to fulfill its official mandate:

  • benefit and promote the BC wild salmon industry;
  • conduct research and educational programs for the development and promotion of commercially harvested wild BC salmon, and;
  • communicate to national and international markets the quality, availability and value of wild BC salmon.
