  1. Ask BC government for transition to land based closed containment salmon farming

    A year ago Cermaq Canada applied for two new open net-pen salmon farms in Clayoquot Sound. We expect a decision about these sites to be announced any day. If approved, they would bring the total number of salmon farms in Clayoquot’s ocean to 22. The new farms are part of a push by the industry to double its production along BC’s coast in the next ten years, even though such farms are known to transfer diseases and parasites to wild stocks. Tell the BC government you want a transition to salmon aquaculture in closed-containment tanks on land, not expansion of ocean feedlots that harm wild salmon.
