Sport Fishing - How We $$tack Up, Updated April 21, 2013


Here is the table that shows the stats from my column (it is the first item on Catchsalmonbc.com, if you wish to look). Then read the most recent post on fishfarmnews. It says that fish farms result in 50% of reduction in wild fish - all around the world where there are fish farms.

That would explain the extinction level of wild chinook on the West Coast Van Isle - now oly 6,000 wild spawners from the San Juan to Quatsino Sound. Shame on DFO:

Notes:

*Commercial income deletes the $70 earned by self-employed fishers.
2. Totals may not equal 100%, due to rounding.
3. Fresh and frozen fish = $125.4 X .673 (portion sold in stores) X .5 (estimated portion on salmon) X .5 (estimated portion spent on farmed salmon)/4.4 million people = $4.79
4. This is the BC Stats document that I used:
