Canada's first desalinated, bottled ocean water offers a sip of the Salish Sea

A Sooke-based company has become the first in Canada to desalinate and sell bottled ocean water.
Saltwest Naturals sells a range of sea salt products using water from the Salish Sea off Vancouver Island's southwest coast, and more than 400 stores across Canada carry the line.
But it wasn't until a chance conversation that one of the company's owners realized he could tap into a new market – bottled seawater.
