Well, the Clayoquot Action Group that went to Norway to call on the Sami peoples, Norwegians, Norwegian government, scientists, environmentalists and Cermaq, in fact everyone they talked to said this about getting fish farms out of the water:
"A clear consensus has emerged over the past two weeks, through meetings with wild salmon advocates, academics, and an investigative journalist. When asked the question, “how can Canada avoid the problems Norway is experiencing with open-net pen salmon farming?”, without hesitation every single person replied: “Shifting to closed containment production is the only way forward”."
See: http://clayoquotaction.org/2016/02/tide-change-in-norway/. Do read this entire article with the Cermaq, Marine Harvest, Grieg Seafood in-ocean fish farms being described as 'dinosaur technology'.
So, now you have heard what the reaction is in Norway. What we need in Canada is for Justin Trudeau and Hunter Tootoo to take fish farms out of the ocean. In BC, there are 73 Million wild salmon, in Atlantic Canada there are only 170,000 wild Atlantic Salmon left in the sea. BC has 99.8% of all the salmon in Canada, and we want fish farms on land or they can take their small GDP contribution (part of only $61.9M) and their few jobs (BC Stats says only 1700 multiplier jobs, and I have looked and found it is only 795 actual jobs) back to Norway and set up on land because the Norwegian government is so fed up with them it is handing out free licences to get out of the ocean and set up on land, a $9- to $12-Million subsidy, representing the auction price of a licence in the ocean.
So it is on land in Canada, and Norway. The movement is spreading because the public and aboriginals where there are fish farms overwhelmingly reject them in the ocean. In BC, the petition to stop expansion and get fish farms out of the water received 110,000 signatures.
