The fight to save wild salmon from salmon feedlots just went to the next level!
Today's blog All Bark and Bite is on the economy of salmon feedlots vs the wild salmon economy. Not only do we get the poop end of this deal, Canadian tax payers are paying to compensate the fish farmers for the disease outbreaks they are creating and you can be eating virus infected salmon when you buy BC farm salmon. Many consider this unwholesome.
The Province of BC has the power to revoke the licences of occupation of all the salmon feedlots on key wild salmon migration routes if it is in the public interest. This industry is 98% Norwegian-owned it is in Norway's interest. Wild salmon are in Canadian's interest. Read my blog, examine the economics, contact the leaders of the BC political parties and tell them it is time (emails at bottom of blog page). There is no reason to continue this madness. It is time for BC politicians to serve the people and this tremendous resource. Transition the few workers in the salmon feedlot industry to something less damaging and lets move forward with bringing wild salmon and the economy of BC back into the pink!
Wild salmon need us right now. They need to stop breathing in salmon feedlot sewage as they try to swim to sea.
Thank you all who have stepped up!
