Media & Publications
From readers of the New York Times, to some of the best chefs in Canada and the US, to government and industry leaders, CAAR is helping shift opinions about what is acceptable in industrial production of farmed salmon.
Our Farmed and Dangerous campaign has been featured in national and international media including: CBC Radio and TV, Global TV, CTV, The New York Times and The Globe and Mail.
