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!

It kills wild young salmon that migrate past the farms it operates. It kills tourism. It constantly looks for new employees which suggests it has a staff retention problem. But most of all it kills wild young salmon. https://twitter.com/TalkSalmon/status/1382035011193470976
“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world ... would do this, it would change the earth.”

Fish populations in Canada have been decimated for decades. @FishOceansCAN has the power & the responsibility to bring our fishing industry back from the brink of collapse. @BernJordanMP must act now for the future of Canada’s fisheries: https://act.oceana.org/page/77765/action/1. #ForOurFisheries
We need a whole new relationship with our blue planet. This means abandoning micro-consumerist bollocks and confronting the powerful interests trashing it.
