In the letter A different investment (Courier-Islander), Watershed Watch Executive Director, Craig Orr, and Fisheries Biologist, Stan Proboszcz, tell the salmon farming industry that “It’s time to invest in a little less denial and obfuscation, and more into protecting wild salmon, and a good start would be to remove farms from the paths of juvenile salmon.”

They also highlight testimony from the Cohen Inquiry dealing with ISA virus, research from DFO’s Dr. Miller on the piscine reovirus and other research that detailed the risks associated with open-net salmon farming.

For more information see the full letter.  Also see Watershed Watch’s Salmon Leaks series for additional highlights from the Cohen Inquiry.

 

One Response to Watershed Watch Calls for Less PR and More Focus on Protecting Wild Salmon

  1. Hello! I think it is high time to take some measures for rescuing wild salmon. If we do not want rare species to disappear we should unite our efforts and prevent the natural disaster by saving bio diversity.
