Watershed Watch quoted in Times Colonist article: Return of fish farm reckless, groups say
The Times Colonist article Return of fish farm reckless, groups say discusses how the reactivation of a salmon farm at Conville Bay is putting half a million farm salmon on the migration route of sockeye salmon. Watershed Watch Fisheries Biologist, Stan Proboszcz, states that “farms on sockeye migration routes should not reopen before the Cohen Commission of Inquiry into the 2009 sockeye collapse has a chance to look at the possible role of fish farms.”
Watershed Watch is a founding member of the Coastal Alliance for Aquaculture Reform and is participating in the Cohen Inquiry into the decline of Fraser Sockeye. For more information on salmon farming see
