Google: Consumers Don't Buy Farmed Salmon

For interest's sake, go Google: consumers don't buy farmed salmon.

This is the link that comes up:,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=bd3320c5af24bc29&biw=1012&bih=531.

I scrolled through the list of pages and stopped at page 52 - Google was offering still more; this means that consumers are well aware of the environmental and chemical issues with farmed salmon.

  1. There are only 820 actual jobs in fish farming which is less than 1% of forestry employment. Fish farming is small, but the environmental degradation is great.

    This blog has tons of science. If you don't want to believe it, that is your business. I have no axe to grind. I do all this on my own volunteer time to stand for wild Pacific salmon.

    85% of BC farmed salmon is sold in the USA, so consumers are not buying it by the truckload. They won't eat it in BC.

    And BC Norwegian derivative fish farms are soon going to lose out the USA market to their own parent companies from Norway, now that the USA has alleviated the 26% countervailing duty for Norway dumping fish. Add that to oversupply in Norway, and the over supply in Chile to 700,000 metric tons and BC fish farms will lose. The 60 that were let go at Christmas may be just the beginning. I am sorry for them and hope they find new jobs soon.

    As the two commenters were not willing to use their real names and their profiles consisted of, well, nothing, they have been deleted. Hasta La vista.
