The Broughton Archipelago Monitoring Plan (BAMP) began in 2010 as a multiyear sea lice monitoring and research program involving Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), the three salmon farming producers in the archipelago (Marine Harvest Canada, Mainstream Canada and Grieg Seafood), the four member groups of the Coastal Alliance for Aquaculture Reform (CAAR)*, and researchers from University of Otago (Dr. Marty Krkošek) – all under the guidance of Dr. Crawford Revie (University of Prince Edward Island).


* CAAR is a coalition of the following conservation organizations: David Suzuki Foundation, Georgia Straight Alliance, Living Oceans Society and T.Buck Environmental Foundation.
