The Wild Salmon Celebration Returns In-Person for the 6th Year!
Gather to enjoy Wild BC Salmon to support fishers and chefs.
Join the Chefs’ Table Society of BC (CTS) and the BC Salmon Marketing Council on Saturday, August 27, 2022 for an outdoor evening event to celebrate iconic wild BC salmon, and our fishers and chefs.
Guests will graze through eight food stations while enjoying BC wines and beer at False Creek Fishermen’s Wharf in Vancouver to celebrate the premium, sustainable seafood that is wild BC salmon.
The celebration in support of wild BC salmon, commercial fishers, and a healthy seafood choice is especially important to showcase the versatility of salmon and the resilience of both the fishery and fishers. During the event, guests will interact with some of BC’s most talented chefs and learn about how they prepared their dishes featuring sockeye salmon but no two dishes will be alike.
Tickets for the dinner are $75.00 per person (plus tax and service fee) and include a delicious tasting menu consisting of eight salmon dishes, samples of BC wines and beers, as well as a confection to end the night. Guests will be entertained by the Don Hardy Quartet while they take in the beauty of Vancouver’s August nights.
This event is also an opportunity to learn more about wild BC salmon while supporting the fishers who make it possible to bring this product to market and onto our plates. Consumers can be confident that the fish that come to market are sustainably caught. And that means that when you see wild salmon on a menu, you can be assured you are supporting a sustainable fishery, BC fishermen and coastal communities up and down the coast.
Some of the 2022 participating chefs and restaurants include:
Ned Bell, Naramata Inn
Vish Mayekar, Caffe La Tana
Paul Nattall, Mr. Bannock
Roger Ma, Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar
Vancouver Community College

About the BC Salmon Marketing Council
The BC Salmon Marketing Council is a non-profit, generic marketing organization for wild BC salmon. Formed in 1991 by the commercial salmon fishermen in British Columbia, Canada to represent the harvesters and processors of commercially-caught wild BC salmon. It is funded by 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. The BCSMC is the ONLY marketing program that represents all BC wild salmon – all five species, all runs, all gear types, all products. As consumers face a myriad of salmon choices, we help promote wild BC salmon as the best choice for healthy, nutritious, delicious and sustainable salmon. Find them on Instagram @gowildbcsalmon
