WILD SALMON ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF OUR PROVINCE
We are lucky to have some healthy salmon runs left, but we need to protect them and ensure they have SAFE PASSAGE through their migration.
Every year, millions of baby salmon must swim a gauntlet of foreign-owned, industrial salmon farms that spew clouds of viruses and parasites. Scientific evidence concludes salmon farms threaten our wild fish.
A $37 million taxpayer-funded inquiry recommended all salmon farms in the Discovery Islands (north of Vancouver) should be removed by 2020 or sooner, if the Minister of Fisheries deems they are too risky.
People power can put this one in the win column! This federal government promised to implement all the inquiry recommendations. If enough people tell the Fisheries Minister the risks are too high, it will be hard for him to keep ignoring the science. He will have to take notice and act.
Stand up and sign the SAFE PASSAGE petition and help protect our wild salmon today!
