Company seeks to farm steelhead after Atlantic salmon escape

The events recalled the hectic summer of 2017, when hundreds of thousands of Atlantic salmon escaped a similar Cooke Aquaculture Pacific structure in the Salish Sea.

Last month, a net pen used for fish farming and operated by Cooke Aquaculture Pacific began to dip below the surface off Bainbridge Island.

A hole in a pontoon left the structure’s southeast corner partially submerged. Repairs were eventually made.
