Call for a more responsible Salmon Farming Industry – an industry that:

  • Uses technology that eliminates the risks of disease and parasite transfer to wild fish as well as escapes of farmed fish into the wild;
  • Guarantees untreated waste is not released into the ocean;
  • Labels fish as “farmed” so consumers can make informed choices;
  • Develops feed for farmed salmon that does not deplete fish stocks around the world;
  • Ensures wildlife is not harmed as a result of salmon farming;
  • Prohibits the use of genetically modified fish;
  • Eliminates the use of chemicals, antibiotics and pesticides in salmon farming;
  • Ensures contaminants in farmed salmon don’t exceed levels deemed safe by international standards; and
  • Stops locating salmon farms in areas opposed by First Nations or other local communities.

Together, we can transform the salmon farming industry!
