Wild Salmon have supported the people of British Columbia.
Now we must support the wild salmon.
Wild salmon are the bloodstream of the British Columbia coast. By carrying ocean nutrients up the rivers to the mountainsides, they are a crucial to the survival of over 100 diverse species. The people of the First Nations flourished with this abundant food source. Wild salmon continued to feed British Columbians as Canada took shape, they still feed the trees that make the oxygen we need.
I believe the invasion of foreign-owned, industrial-scale fish farms, with their exotic Atlantic salmon, have
destabilized the British Columbia coast. The massive expansion of fish feedlots is associated
with new and escalating fish viruses and disease, artificially high numbers of
sea lice that kill young wild salmon, toxic algae blooms and the fouling of the
water and sea bottom.
As the Norwegian-owned fish farm industry pumps out even more farmed salmon (increasingly considered a hazard to both the environment and consumers), our wild salmon suffer the consequences
