A group of amazing people on Canada's west coast are currently working really hard to save Canada's wild salmon population from diseases coming from fish farms, some of these amazing people are personal friends of mine that I met in West Kelowna last year. So please share this video to raise awareness of the situation in Canada's beautiful British Columbia. Thank you

Thank you for posting that.
It points out how fish farming is even more dangerous to world health than GMO's and chemicals used by BigAg.
BigAg is not content with poisoning our lands...they want to fuck up our waters as well.

I spent a lot of time in the Chilean Canals before they began farming salmon there.
They mentioned the $2 billion losses there, but those don't even take into account the damages done to one of the richest fishing grounds in the continent. The damages they are counting are only for the salmon farms. Seafood for the locals there, is just like the salmon are to our natives here in the PNW...a way of life.

One of the scientists that they featured in the Cohen Commission coverage, (that was confirming that Norway was prohibiting fish farms in natural fish grounds) is very familiar to me. For 5 of the 7 years that I was involved in Antarctic research, I worked each spring with Dr. Ian Sterling. He is an honest, hard working, true scientist. He is in the 'game' to learn about how things work in nature. He is not one of the corporate, nor academia "yes men". His knowledge comes from hard work in the field amongst the critters he is studying. He is one of CA's leading authorities on Polar Bears (as well as Antarctic seals).
