Wild BC salmon is the most politicized creature in Canada, even more than polar bears.
Make no mistake . . . politics and big money flavour what you eat, so choose wisely when you choose seafood.
Canadian wild salmon has become a political pawn in the grand scheme of the Canadian seafood industry.
Wild capture commercial fishing has lost steam and can no longer meet consumer demands. Over the last thirty years Canada also tried open-net pen fish farming in the ocean, and although it was a good effort, it also can’t deliver for a number of reasons – two being environmental and ecological. Open-net pen fish farming hurts our oceans and wild fish species.
The only reasonable solution is to move fish farming out of the ocean and into safer inland environments that won’t harm our oceans or salmon species. Consequently, Land-Based RAS IMTA Aquaponic Fish Farming is now on the cusp of being able to provide the solution that Canada and our world needs in order to meet consumer demand, and as importantly keep our oceans and fish stocks healthy.
It’s not quite there yet, but don’t blink!

Hey y'all! How would you feel about a scientist with a Patreon account? I've been asked by a few folks if I have one, and am tempted but unsure. If I got one, it would be to share stories and discoveries I am not yet ready or able to share on spaces like Twitter.
More than 100 farmers in BC have started growing crops & raising livestock on more than 5,000 acres of farmland since 2016 through the B.C. Land Matching Program. In 2020, 46 land matches were made. 🙂 #bcpoli #positivevibes #GrowBC
@wildfirstcanada @alex4salmon Totally agree with the elimination of salmon farming in BC coastal waters. It still boggles my mind when I see people support this industry. I assume most are employed or get some money for their support. Imagine if we relied on Atlantic Farmed Salmon to build our forests.
@wildfirstcanada We need to convert 33% of our pastureland back to forest and your advocating to covert ocean farming to land. You do realise 70% of our planet is ocean, why can’t we use part of it to farm? Why is the ocean and its animals more important than restoring habitats for other animals?
Canada’s proposed rebuilding regulations aren’t enough to create robust and effective rebuilding plans. To give our oceans and fisheries a chance to recover, @FishOceansCAN must include defined targets and timelines & list all stocks in the critical zone. https://oceana.ca/en/press-center/press-releases/proposed-fisheries-act-regulations-will-fail-rebuild-fish-stocks
Not our usual tweet, but we're keen to know. What have you been cooking at home? Big family meals or, smaller meals for 1 or 2? Easy, convenient recipes or, ones that require a little more love and attention? Let us know. We'd love to hear from you... #lockdowndinners
Foreign owned salmon farming companies use employees' jobs to "bully" agencies. Instead of moving forward with technologies which minimize marine ecosystem impacts, creating new jobs, investing in infrastructure,hey perpetuate a broken model.
