Salmon farms have a negative impact on the health and abundance of wild Pacific salmon

“Fish farms are having a very serious detrimental impact on the health and abundancy of wild Pacific salmon” says Bob Chamberlin, Chair of First Nation Wild Salmon Alliance. “We’ve encountered a horribly flawed process – the Canadian Scientific Advisory Secretariat and they provide the footing for DFO to tell Canadians everything is ok…but their process has industry involved from the beginning to the end. Removing the farms is the best thing that can happen to safeguard wild salmon in BC.” Listen to As It Happens | CBC Radio here and start at 9:50 mark.
