Alexandra Morton - Summary Video of Fish Farm Companies Problems, Mostly Norweigian

For a good, quick summary of current fish farm issues, watch this video by Alexandra Monton. It is good and covers a lot of different problems:

Then go and look at my News Bits and Bites. I read four fish farm global newsletters every day, and decided to do a post of quick links to problems. I am very taken aback by the many issues that happen around the world every day - a lot of carnivorous and illegal activities. See:

As of November 5, 2015, there are more than 129 quick links, from the past several months.

Here is a new one: A fish farm CEO was sentenced to six months in jail in Norway for illegally reporting false lice numbers. Former CEO Egil Johansen of farming company Nord Senja Laks.

And then a Nov 5 post shows that Jo Lunder, CEO of Fredrikson Group was just charged with corruption. Fredriksen Group CEO Arrested, Charged with Corruption - FG Owns Marine Harvest. See:

So, on the one hand we have a long list of illegal activities, boom bust cycles and so on. And on the other, we have DFO's take on current lice reporting. Does this make DFO sound naive? See: It should do independent audits, but it really doesn't have enough Conservation and Protection staff to do the job.
