BAD NEWS BITES - Updated Mar 27, 2018


I receive 30 global press fish farm/seafood industry newsletters every week. In these, I have found a startling amount of bad news, and decided to do a post on it. I had no idea there was as much bad news as there is.

I am at my eighth post. In little more than two years, I have found 2500 BAD NEWS BITES. Some days I am stunned by the amount of bad news in the fish farm/seafood industry.  Find the fifth BAD NEWS BITES post here: http://fishfarmnews.blogspot.ca/2017/05/bad-news-bites-fifth-post.html. And that reaches 2,000.

This is the link to the fourth post, Jan 14, 2017, it has 500 BAD NEWS BITES in it: http://fishfarmnews.blogspot.ca/2017/01/bad-news-bites.html. it has links to the previous three posts since July 2015. You can find earlier ones at these links.

Here is a summary of the bad news stories:

"In one mouthful, here are the kind of stories I am finding: boom bust industry, billions made and lost, crisis in lice and disease, bankruptcy, workers fired, executives jumping company to company, dividing big bonuses, fraud, corruption, litigation, conflict of interest with government and scientists, using the ocean as a free open sewer – $10.4 Billion in BC alone, killing of whales, seals and sea lions – more than 12,000 in BC so far, slavery, unpaid labour, taxpayers paying millions for diseased, dead fish – $177 Million in Canada, dueling scientists, weakening of laws, unsustainable feed, illegal fishing, jail sentences, disasters in Norway, Scotland, Chile, Canada, bullying of scientists, governments and anyone critical of their business, cartels, collusion, price fixing, fishing down the food chain to Antarctic krill, carcinogens and persistent organic pollutants, fluoroquinolones, chicken feathers in feed, animal feces in feed, eutrophication in a time of global warming, Malachite Green fungFicide in USA seafood, fake industry awards, all the wild salmon in the Pacific ocean, more than a billion, put in peril... it goes on."

Update, Dec 11, 2017: I have found 500 BAD NEWS BITES in less than 3.5 months. That means well over 1000 in a year. That is how much bad news there is in fish farms/seafood industry. This post, the sixth, may be found here: http://fishfarmnews.blogspot.ca/2017/08/bad-news-bites-salmonseafood-industry.html.

The Court question whether cages in open water is the best technique and they also question the possibility for the affected waters to break down the amounts of nutrients [means sewage] delivered by the farming without being eutrophicated.

  • The sector is not being regulated sufficiently or effectively

399. Fish Farm Costs - BC, Otto Langer: http://www.raincoast.org/files/publications/reports/ghost-runs/ghostruns-chap5.pdf. He says this: "Before 1985, BC produced 15% of
the world’s salmon, yet virtually none of this came from farms. In 1999, BC
produced 5% of the world’s farmed salmon and only 1% of the world’s wild
salmon. Between 1990 and 2000, commercial landings of BC wild salmon
declined by over 80%, while output from salmon farming increased over 80%
(23,300 tonnes to 43,900 tonnes; Egan 2001). BC farms have become very
successful, and their production continues to increase. Farm stocks, while
biased toward an exotic species (81% Atlantic salmon), also include a native
component (19% Pacific salmon in 1999)." DFO has not done it's job.

374. Towards 265 Million Dead Salmon - Norway:  http://www.nationen.no/kommentar/mot-265-millioner-dode-laks/. 53million died in 2017. And: "Veterinary Institute's Fisheries Report for 2017 shows a "waste" of 53 million salmon, mainly as a consequence of injury and disease. This means that 13 percent of the salmon in the cages died (some escaped) and 16 percent of the rainbow trout. Mortality was as great last year as in 2016. To use Dagblad's John O. Egeland's precise comment: "High mortality is a sure sign that the welfare of salmon is bad"."

364. Disease/Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria - BC, blood water has PRV and enterococci in it. The latter is a human pathogen. It may be being fed to fish farm fish as it accelerates growth. And it is resistant to tetracycline one of human's most common antibiotics: http://alexandramorton.typepad.com/alexandra_morton/. Look for a Feb 22, 2018 post. The bottom line: "Treatment of enterococcal infections can be difficult because Enterococcus species are intrinsically resistant to many antimicrobial agents and have the capacity to acquire resistance genes and mutations. Use of antibiotics in the BC salmon farming industry is second only to Chile with BC using an average of 1.75 antibiotic treatments per grow out cycle in 2014. Sixteen percent of enterococcus isolates from farmed salmon were found to be resistant to the antibiotic tetracycline. Release of antibiotic resistant strains of enterococcus would pose an additional threat to human health." The ARB issue is significant.

337. Cooke Complains - typical for fish farms. WA State. It says there is no science that says fish farms damage wild stocks, and lots of jobs will be lost. Well, there is 20,000 pages of science on this site, and there is a lot more out there. As for jobs, Cooke has 80 jobs, so it is peanuts in an area with 3.8 million people. And, if the farms are on land, all Cooke employees will be retained: http://www.seafoodnews.com/Story/1092752/Cooke%2DExpresses%2DStrong%2DDisappointment%2Dwith%2DWashington%2DHouse%2Dand%2DSenate%2DVotes%2Dto%2DBan%2DNetpens.

"THE focus of salmon farming has shifted from building markets to building new technologies and placating public opinion, an audience in Copenhagen was told this week. Trond Davidsen, president of the International Salmon Farmers Association (ISFA), said traditional farming in open cages faced challenges both above and below water, with the industry losing the struggle for its reputation in Norway." Or so Trond thinks. The public just grow more angry with in-ocean trashing the world's water. "The industry in Norway has grown from 98 tonnes in 1971 to 1.2 million tonnes in 2017. But since 2012 there has been little increase in production. The reasons for this include biological challenges, but also ‘a lack of public support, and opposition is growing’, said Davidsen." Really, I hadn't noticed. "‘To my knowledge, there are no examples of successful land based salmon farms yet. I am not arguing against it, just stating facts, but it will happen, maybe not tomorrow or 10 years or 15 years from now, but it will happen eventually.’" Trond you obviously haven't read my post of the 212 on-land fish farms i have found, comprising 20,000 actual on land farms around the world: https://fishfarmnews.blogspot.ca/2016/05/152-different-on-land-fish-farm-systems.html.
