A rapidly deteriorating situation
The Harper government of Canada gave the Norwegian salmon feedlot industry the green light to expand in BC. Days later on January 28, 2014, the biggest Norwegian company using British Columbia to grow “salmon” was listed on the New York Stock Exchange. They are talking big expansion, looking for US investors. Each fish farm is now issued a federal licence, giving the companies the power to use fish infected with salmon viruses in their farms. I am in court fighting this. This is a death sentence to the wild salmon of British Columbia.
Each salmon farm also needs a provincial licence – a rental agreement for the seafloor below the floating farm. I need your help to send a clear message to the Premier of British Columbia: do not rent the seafloor to the salmon farming industry. See my blog for details http://alexandramorton.typepad.com Please share the petition “Restore wild salmon, Ban salmon feedlots in BC” (at www.change.org) with your friends and family for the wild salmon. Thank you.
