Hello, my name's Dawn and I live on the west coast of Canada. I work on a fish farm.
Right now I'm feeding the fish, which are kept in cages in the sea. The cages are tied to rocks on the bottom of the sea. It can get very windy here. Twice a day I put the fish food in the boat and go out to the cages. The fish are always hungry!
When the fish have grown to the right size, we pull the cages out of the water. The fish are killed and cleaned. Our fish farm is a long way from the nearest market. So we either freeze the fish or smoke them. We don't salt any fish here. Some fish farms do but we don't.
Three of us work here and there's always a lot to do. Inside that building over there we have tanks for the young fish. We produce all our own fish from eggs. The fish start to grow in fresh water. Then, when they are bigger they go into the sea, which is salty, of course.
There's always lots of work: feeding the fish, cleaning the tanks, getting eggs out of the best of the large fish, harvesting the fish, cleaning them and smoking them. We have an old machine for smoking the fish. We burn our own wood and that way we get a very good strong smoke. It's more way we get a very good strong smoke. It's more work, but we get higher prices for our smoked fish.
