We’koqma’q purchases arena in Inverness County tax sale to store equipment used in nearby rainbow trout farm
Jul 12, 2018
Nova Scotia’s We’koqma’q First Nation has bought the old Whycocomagh arena to expand the band’s fish farm.
We’koqma’q got $1 million last month from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and is putting in $750,000 of its own to double its production of rainbow trout this year.
We’koqma’q harvested 70,000 rainbow trout in 2016 and 170,000 fish last year. The band expects that will grow to more than 400,000 this year.
The community is adding 37 cages to its trout farm in Bras d’Or Lake, bringing the total to 64 this year. By next year, there will be 92 fish cages in the water.
